Next up on Instagram stories, Chrissy posted some cute photos of her as a child.

Also included was a sweet throwback video of her playing with her newborn son Miles, captioned with two heart emojis.

Meanwhile Chrissy revealed she is on a new ‘crusade’ to normalize formula feeding, after being struck with ‘sadness’ and ‘guilt’ over difficulty breastfeeding her children. 

After giving birth to her daughter Luna, now four, and son Miles, now two, the wife of John Legend recalled having to ‘use formula because of lack of milk from depression and whatnot.’

The best-selling author, who lost her child halfway into her pregnancy in September, said not being able to perform ‘nature’s most natural thing’ caused her to feel shame and stress.

‘Normalize breastfeeding is such a huge, wonderful thing. but I absolutely felt way more shame having to use formula because of lack of milk from depression and whatnot,’ she tweeted to her more than 13.5 million followers.  

She continued: ‘People have surrogates, people have trouble breastfeeding and all you hear as a new, anxious mom is how breast is best.’ 

Since expectant parents are often told that breastfed babies have fewer infections and hospitalizations than formula-fed infants, Teigen penned a reminder that all babies, regardless of how they are fed, will ‘be BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT, AND OKAY.’

‘I remember pumping my A** OFF, highest mode, so often, because I didn’t trust milk was going into their mouthes if I breastfed. it drove me mad to the point I could only get an ounce. An ounce!’ she recalled. 

The star concluded: ‘I just remember the sadness I felt and want you to know you are doing it right if your baby is fed, mama.’ 

Her experience resonated with many of women whom discussed their own stories and losing precious time with their newborns by trying to pump with no success.

‘Normalize motherhood. Women are shamed for absolutely every choice we make as mothers. Every. Single. One,’ a Florida-based mother replied, and has since garnered more than 3,300 likes. 

Another Twitter user, who said she works as a pediatrician wrote: ‘Formula-shaming is the norm. Some babies don’t latch on to the breast well (despite mom doing all correctly) & may be hospitalized for failure to thrive. I’ve seen mothers with raw, pus-filled breasts still shamed into feeding. Formula is not unhealthy.’  

Earlier in the day, the beauty revealed in an Instagram video she had mastered the art of preparing the perfect morning bubble bath, which she called ‘complicated.’ 

Using more than five different products from Amazon and listening to the True Crime Obsessed, she talked about not having the energy to stand up in the shower for the past few weeks, after the loss of her unborn son, named Jack. 

‘I’m doing good, I feel good’ she said. ‘My legs are working again. Is it possible to overdose on therapy? I think I might have that. But, I don’t know, I guess I feel good. I feel good today.’
