AceShowbiz - New mum Eva Amurri is weaning her newborn son off breastfeeding after starting to feel "emotionally and physically" depleted.
Susan Sarandon's actress daughter welcomed her third child, little Mateo Antoni, with ex-husband Kyle Martino in March, but almost three months into life as a mother-of-three, Eva is finding herself really struggling amid the stress of nursing.
The 35-year-old admits she previously had to transition her daughter Marlowe, now five, to formula at four months, while she also found herself in a similar mental health situation with her now-three-year-old son Major, when he was an infant.
"The decision to wean is super personal for every woman and can come with a lot of emotion - especially because each woman's decision to wean can be tied to feelings of really deep-rooted frustration, shame, sadness, relief or pressure," Eva writes on her blog.
"There is no right way to feed a baby, in my opinion, and it's taken three kids for me to solidly feel the right to that opinion."
Eva admits her breastfeeding journey the third time around has been "overwhelmingly positive", but adds, "I've realized that what it's taking out of me emotionally and physically is leaving me more depleted than I'd like as a working, single mama to two other kids."
She goes on to share that the weaning process has already been "pretty emotional" after a "nutty" few months, and concludes: "Since I have been both a formula-feeding mama and a breastfeeding mama, I do know that taking that time itself with my baby is what ultimately bonds us, though. I know our bond is written in the stars, and not as a result of how I feed him. I'm so glad I know this now as I start the emotional process of weaning!"
Eva and soccer pundit Martino announced their separation in November (19), two months after sharing their pregnancy news, and they finalised their divorce in February.
