Television host Divine Lee disclosed the real explanation on why she refuses to breastfeed her child.
KAMI learned that the promising host believes bottle-feeding is the best way for her baby especially after he suffered from a condition in the tongue called tongue-tie.
Divine explained that her child’s condition interfered with breastfeeding and it even prevented the baby from latching.
"Yung una it was hard for me... yung anak ko parang siyang bulol so yung tongue niya medyo magkadikit so hindi siya maka-suck,” she quipped.
"It's called a lip-tie or tongue-tie. So you have to cut it and it releases para maka-suck siya nang mas maayos," she added.
Because of this, the host expressed that she decided to just pump her breast milk and put it in a bottle just so she can feed her baby properly.
Divine also hinted her high respect to moms who also avoid breastfeeding and are into pumping method instead.
"At first, he was latching, some people are purists kasi na gusto nila latch lang,” she stressed.
"But ako, I believe in what is best for my child... Kaya I don't judge people who are on formula, who are just pumping,” she added.
