  • Honestly most babies will turn their noses up at the formula. I know my daughter despised it when I had to supplement.

  • when i had my second child..formula is given while i am at work...then i breastfed her when i am home..try it..your baby can just simply adjust but i suggest to consult her pedia doc as to what best formula for her.

  • Why would a child love formula over breast milk? It can't be the taste. Or the smell. Or the fact that it wrecks havoc on their digestion. From colic to projectile vomiting. And what about now having to wean the baby twice? First from your breast then again from the bottle. And I hope you are ready to buy a brand new wardrobe for your child. Those nasty stains formula make each and every time a baby pukes it back out do not come out.
