Nollywood actress Lala Akindoju has narrated how she struggled so much with producing breast milk for her newborn son, adding that she started giving him formula 24 hours after his birth.
She disclosed how she ate everything that was recommended and did everything possible just to produce enough milk for her baby, but nothing was working.
She said she cried and felt guilty that her baby must be lacking the necessary nutrient if he’s fed formula.
The movie producer added that relatives encouraging her to breastfeed and shun formula didn’t help matters.
With time, she accepted that she couldn’t produce enough milk and she settled on formula for her baby.
She encouraged nursing mothers experiencing the same thing not to beat themselves up, as long as their babies are well-fed and happy.
Media personality, Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi commented, explaining that she had a similar experience
