Doctors and medical professionals all agree that breastfeeding your newborn child is much healthier than using a bottle. It provides important vitamins and nutrients that baby formula lacks. There are certain instances, however, where a bottle may be necessary.
Some new mothers have a difficult time producing a sufficient amount of milk for their child. The newborn will breastfeed for many hours a day because it’s not getting the proper nutrient it needs. A child can quickly dehydrate, which could lead to death. In these cases, a bottle is critical.
Jillian Johnson learned a heartbreaking lesson about the importance of bottle-feeding in the rare case that the mother doesn’t produce enough milk. Her son, Landon, was just 15 days old when doctors gave his mother and father news about their him that no parent ever wants to hear.
With no knowledge of Landon’s undernourishment, Jillian and her husband brought him home from the hospital, even though he was still crying whenever he wasn’t feeding. Jillian and her husband weren’t prepared for the heartbreak they were about to endure…
No parent should ever have to endure such a traumatic loss. Jillian is showing incredible strength by speaking out to other mothers and fathers about her story.
