Eva Amurri Explains Why She Stopped Breastfeeding Her Son

Eva Amurri Martino is opening up about why she decided to stop breastfeeding her baby boy Major after a couple months.

The 31-year-old actress is speaking out in hopes of taking away the stigma of choosing not to breastfeed your child until the recommended age of at least a year old.

Eva explained on her blog Happily Eva After that after Major was dropped by his night nurse when he was five weeks old, her “breastfeeding journey got totally thrown off.”

“While we were in the hospital with him, and in the next couple of weeks, my milk supply dipped big time,” Eva said.

“But then, my post-partum anxiety began, and my milk supply has been so troubled ever since. On ‘good days’ it was fine, and Major would be able to easily get a robust and full feeding from me– but then on the bad days or weeks when I was having a hard time emotionally, my supply would suffer,” Eva said. “What made this even worse is how much I would blame myself for it all. I would put so much pressure on myself to battle the anxiety so that my son’s food source wouldn’t suffer.”

    this is what formula is for. i think as long as you try your best to breast feed, whether you succeed or not is not important. learn from the mistakes and move on. in this case, this sort of stress probably won’t happen a second time, so she might have a better chance with her next baby, if she has one. best of luck.
