Product description


Guilt-Free Bottlefeeding is a frank, smart, and much-needed contribution to the parenting genre. With all the discussion of “choice” in the breast vs. bottle debate, parents aren’t armed with sufficient information to actually make anything close to an informed decision. By reading this book, written in a reassuring and friendly style that’s perfect for those stuck in the mire of early parenthood, parents will finally feel empowered to make a choice that is right for their family. Morris and Howard explain the realities of research and the mechanics of safe bottle-feeding, while also deftly acknowledging the complex emotions mothers may have around their feeding choices, they have given formula feeding parents a superb resource that will surely be welcomed with gratitude and relief. 

(Suzanne Barston, author of Bottled Up and creator, The Fearless Formula Feeder)

From the Back Cover

You are not a bad mother if you can’t breastfeed.

 For decades mums have been told that ‘breast is best’, that breastfeeding is the single-most important thing we can do for our children.  Despite this huge pressure on modern mums, the vast majority of us end up using formula.  And we feel guilty.

 In Guilt-Free Bottle Feeding award-winning journalist Madeleine Morris and paediatrician Dr Sasha Howard challenge the simplistic message of ‘breast is best’, revealing what everybody knows, but nobody says out loud – that bottle fed babies can grow up to be perfectly happy, healthy and smart. 

 With a thorough yet accessible analysis of health science, parenting sociology and the modern media, the authors provide a balanced, much-needed and long-overdue voice, showing mothers who don’t exclusively breastfeed why they are not failures.

 A mix of political and practical, Guilt-Free Bottle-Feeding also offers comprehensive advice on feeding, including:

 • Choosing a formula, and choosing a bottle

 • Sterilising and preparing a feed

 • How to promote bonding while bottle-feeding

 * Moving from breast to bottle, and mixed feeding

 In an era where the pressure on mums is greater than ever before, Guilt-Free Bottle Feeding resets the conversation around infant feeding, supporting all families regardless of how they feed their babies. 


This is not an anti-breastfeeding book. This is an anti-guilt book.




Madeleine Morris is an award-winning journalist and broadcaster, who has reported from more than 20 countries for the BBC. She has written for The Times, Guardian, Sydney Morning Herald and the Age.


Dr Sasha Howard is a paediatrician with a special interest in paediatric endocrinology. She is the author of several peer-reviewed scientific papers and book chapters and has presented her academic work internationally.
