FIRST-TIME MOM PROBLEMS. Six days later, things have been well except the feeding part.

Early today, November 20, Robin posted on Instagram his latest video call with his wife, who became emotional while talking about not having enough breast milk to feed Baby Isabella.

The TV host sobbed, "I don't have enough milk. She's so hungry and she gets no milk."

She told Robin, "I searched for this, it's organic, but it's still formula. I really didn't want to give her formula.

She continued, "Imagine, the milk came on the fifth day. Imagine if I didn't give her formula, she'd be hungry for five days!

Meanwhile, Robin explained the importance of breastfeeding babies especially those under six months.

One of the most important benefits of breastfeeding is it protects infants from a long list of illnesses.

Robin wrote, "Breast milk contains antibodies that help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria.

"Breastfeeding lowers your baby's risk of having asthma or allergies.

"Plus babies who are breastfed exclusively for the first six months, without any formula, have fewer ear infections, respiratory illnesses, and bouts of diarrhea."
