Meghan Trainor opened up about how she decided to stop breastfeeding her son and has no regrets about it in an interview with Hoda Kotb for the Today Show. 

In the interview, Trainor told Kotb how initially she pumped in the hospital room, right after her C-section, and producing very little milk.

“So finally, I was like, ‘I’m done,'” Trainor told Kotb. She also added that many people have been supportive of her decision to bottle feed, which is not necessarily always the case. 

According to the CDC, 58% of babies in the US are breastfed at six months of age. That number drops to 35% by the first year. Still, a lot of moms feel shame when bottle-feeding their children.

Trainor’s son Riley was born in February 2021, and it was a “scary birth,” according to the singer.

“It was one of those horror stories where he didn’t cry,” Trainor told Today Parents. “He didn’t make noise when he came out. I was like, ‘Why isn’t he crying?’ Then they told me he was having breathing issues. It was terrifying.” Now he is all smiles, according to Trainor.
