Chrissy Teigen announced that she is on a new “crusade” to normalize formula nutrition after experiencing “sadness” and “guilt” over difficulties in breastfeeding her children.
After giving birth to their four-year-old daughter Luna and two-year-old son Miles, John Legend’s 34-year-old wife recalled having to use a formula “because of lack of milk due to depression and so on.”
The best-selling cookbook author, who lost her child mid-September in pregnancy, said she felt ashamed and stressed out when she was unable to do “the most natural thing in nature.”
Using Her Platform Forever: Chrissy Teigen announced that she is on a new “crusade” to normalize food feeding after experiencing “sadness” and “guilt” for not being able to breastfeed her children
“Normalizing breastfeeding is such a big, wonderful thing. But I was absolutely more ashamed because I had to use formula because of lack of milk due to depression and so on, ”she tweeted to her 13.5 million followers.
She continued, “People have surrogate mothers, people have trouble breastfeeding, and all you hear as a new, anxious mother is how breasts are best.”
As parents-to-be are often told that breastfed babies have fewer infections and fewer hospitalizations than infants fed the formula, Teigen reminded that all babies, regardless of how they are fed, will be “BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT AND OK” .
Opening: The best-selling cookbook author who lost her child mid-pregnancy in September said she felt ashamed and stressed out when she was unable to do “the most natural thing in nature.”
“I remember pumping my A ** OFF, the highest mode, so many times because I didn’t trust milk to get into her mouth when I was breastfeeding. it made me so angry I could only get an ounce more. One ounce! ‘ she remembered.
The star concluded, “I just remember the sadness I felt and want you to know you’re doing it right when your baby is being fed, mom.”
Her experience resonated with many of many who discussed their own stories and lost valuable time with their newborns trying to pump to no avail.

‘Normalize motherhood. Women are ashamed of absolutely every choice we make as mothers. Everyone. Single. One, ”replied a mother from Florida and has since collected more than 3,300 likes.
Another Twitter user who said she works as a pediatrician wrote, “Formula shame is the norm. Some babies do not cling well to the chest (although mother is doing everything right) and may be hospitalized for not thriving. I’ve seen mothers with raw, pus-filled breasts who are still ashamed to feed. Formula is not unhealthy. ‘
In 2018, Teigen was beaten up by a commenter on Instagram after her husband posted a snippet of her sentiment, her youngest Miles, with a bottle.

While she had previously shared still pictures, the post sparked criticism from a mother-shamer who commented: “You no longer breastfeed?”
“John never breastfed Miles,” Teigen quipped back in the comment section.
Over the years, the earlier model has been open about IVF, her fertility problems, postpartum depression, and her recent pregnancy loss.

Just hours after her tweets about the destigmatization of formulas, she asked social media users to track down a song she heard on Sirius XM Radio.
“I went crazy trying to figure out a song I just heard on the radio twice that morning. It sounded like The Weeknd but can’t find it on iTunes. GOING CRAZY “, she wrote before describing the track as” new but sounded in the 80s “.

She made it clear it wasn’t Blinding Lights, but it definitely sounded like The Weeknd.
While some fans were able to find out that it was The Weeknd’s song Save Your Tears, the artist himself asked if it was Max Martin’s fourth studio album, After Hours.

“I’m fine, I feel fine,” she said. ‘My legs are working again. Is it possible to overdose on therapy? I think I could have that. But I don’t know, I think I feel fine I’m doing well today.’
