🤱💊 Boob vs. Brain: The Ultimate Showdown! 💊🤱

Our momma-to-be is caught between a rock and a hard place - she desperately wants to be the best mom possible, but she knows that means getting back on her ADHD meds ASAP after giving birth. 😰 Her husband, however, is adamant that she should breastfeed for at least 6 months, if not the full 2 years! 😱 He even goes so far as to call her meds a 'meth addiction' and claims he deserves equal say in how long she breastfeeds. 😠 Our girl is willing to compromise by breastfeeding for the first few days to give baby that precious colostrum, but after that, she wants to switch to formula so she can function at her best. 🍼 So, what does the internet think of this sticky situation? 🤔 Let's see what kind of drama unfolds in the comments! 🍿

Breastfeeding vs ADHD meds - mom's choice. NTa, husband's TA.
