God's Gift to Moms: The Baby Brezza


When meeting new moms and talking about kids, one of the first questions always asked in conversation is, "Are you breastfeeding?"

I feel guilty every single time I say no.

Reese is fed, happy, and healthy, so why does it matter? Why do we care if other people are feeding their babies breastmilk or formula?

That first week home from the hospital was SO hard for us. People tell you breastfeeding isn't easy. While you're pregnant, you research and read about how breastfeeding isn't easy. Even so, you can't truly understand the reality until you're in it. At the beginning, I shed more tears than Reese trying to get her to latch, finding the right position, and praying I was making enough milk to sustain her appetite. I would grow anxious as the clock crept closer and closer to feeding time, and I felt as if I was tied to my house, uncomfortable thinking about having to breastfeed in public. One day, it seemed like it all just clicked - like Reese figured out what she needed to do and I discovered how to make it work. My breastfeeding journey only lasted about six weeks, but I did end up loving every minute of it.

I worried when we switched to formula that the special bond you make with your baby while feeding wouldn't be same. I couldn't have been more wrong. Even with a bottle, her gorgeous blue-green eyes stare up at me just the same. They start to flutter closed when she's relaxing, and she still nestles into the crook of my arm. I'm still intoxicated by her sweet baby smell, and once I realized all of this, I truly got to enjoy the convenience of formula feeding

Enter the Baby Brezza Formula Pro.


If you are a formula feeding mama or a mama to be, I cannot tell you enough that this is worth every penny. It is known in our house as the baby Keurig. Fill it up with water on one side, put powder in the top, hit the button, and there you go - a bottle perfectly measured out at just the right temperature in 30 seconds. The Brezza is a lifesaver during those early weeks when babies eat so often, but it is especially a godsend when your baby is crying at 3am and you're half asleep. 

While formula wasn't my first choice and won't be again when we have baby #2, it's not a terrible plan b. Once we switched exclusively, I could have a bottle easily in the diaper bag. I was able to be out and about with Reese without panicking about where and how I would breastfeed in a restaurant or while running errands (seriously admire the women who do it so easily - I was just never comfortable enough). Matt began to take over middle of the night feedings on the weekends (Can I get an amen?), and friends and family could share in the baby bliss by being able to give Reese her bottle. 

Sometimes breastfeeding doesn't work out despite our very best efforts, but the #momguilt is real. I still remind myself that there isn't a reason to feel bad. She is healthy and happy, and as we all know, fed is best.



You can get the Baby Brezza at many retailers, but if you purchase it through Buy Buy Baby, you can use one of those wonderful 20% off Bed, Bath, and Beyond coupons! And what mama doesn't love saving some money?

  34. In my country we it is a Mother's decision if she prefers to feed her baby using baby bottle/formula, breastfeeding or in some cases just a rice's juice. It isn't our position to judge, it is the Mother's decision how to take care of her child.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow, that sounds amazing!!! I wish that would have been around when my kids were babies.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That would have been so cool to have around when my daughter was a baby. Would have made the feeding so much easier. That's awesome
