Chrissy Teigen Opens up About Feeling Shame for Not Breastfeeding and Advocates to ‘Normalize Formula’

Chrissy Teigen Opens up About Feeling Shame for Not Breastfeeding and Advocates to ‘Normalize Formula’

Chrissy Teigen has been incredibly candid about her motherhood journey, opening up about everything from fertility,  morning sickness, and postnatal depression to the heartbreaking recent loss of her third child, Jack, delivered prematurely at 20 weeks.

The 34-year-old mum has revealed in a thread of tweets that she felt “shame” and “guilt” when her body struggled to produce enough breast milk for her two children, daughter Luna, and son Miles.

As with much of what Teigen shares on social media, people had plenty to say.

A lot agreed with her, one writing that they felt demonised by the “tit nazis” in the maternity ward after opting to formula feed her baby. Others shared their own stories of feeling shame and guilt for not being able to produce enough milk to nurture their little ones.

Naturally, some disagreed and some took it too far, as is often the case with Teigen’s social media posts.

But one common theme ran through her replies:

Yes. This is absolutely the message. Normalise fed and normalise support without judgement.
