What does “feeding your baby in any way mean?” Balanced Breastfeeding is an inclusive space for any lactating parent. It is a space for those who make a full supply of breastmilk for their babies, and those who combination feed with any amount of formula. It is a space for those who express their milk with a breast pump and those who nurse their babies by latching directly at the breast.
If you are postpartum, make milk, or are pregnant and hope to make milk, these groups are for you.
