The Bachelor Nation star went on, saying, “I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share this in fear of being judged or getting mommy shamed (can’t believe it’s actually a thing, but this was the kind of post I wish I had read before giving birth. If you choose/are able to breastfeed, I hope my story gives you hope.”
Vanessa concluded her post by writing, “FYI Winston is mainly formula fed, so if you’re formula feeding and that works for you and your baby, that’s amazing! Formula or breastmilk, you do you, boo!!!!”
Many of Vanessa’s fellow Bachelor Nation stars and fans flooded the comments of her post showing her love and thanking her for her openness about her journey.
