  • breastfeeding is best because it will keep your supply going strong and meet the demands of your baby. it's especially important when your baby is first born because your milk is still coming in! but bottle feeding can be very convenient if you're in a rush, overtired, sick (you can store milk for months!) or not into nursing in public.

  • Breastfeeding is always best for baby.

    However, formula is not bad. If you can't breastfeed for whatever reason, don't let anyone make you feel bad for it.

  • Breastfeeding is always better. But why do you ask? There are a few cases where a mom shouldn't breastfeed. Even then breastmilk (from a milkbank) is still technically the best for baby.

  • Breast is always best.

    But formula is okay too! I'm a proud exclusive formula feeder.

  • Simply stated: breast is best.
    There really is no need to add the BUT after that statement. Regardless of our personal situation or final decision, the fact that breastmilk is far superior than formula never changes.
    Ever.

  • Is this a serious question?

    Obviously breastmilk is nutritionally superior to formula.

    But the choice is yours to make. Formula is an acceptable option as well.

    Good luck!!
