I'm currently expecting and all doctors have said that breast feeding is best. While I do agree how long should I breast feed and will it ever be okay to switch to formula, if so when? How long should a baby stay on breast milk?Answer Question

Really? Breast is best, formula fed is better than dead. Comon...read some research or talk to La Leche League. Breastfeed until two years or longer. Then switch to whole milk. There ya go Pandora.

Often people erroaneousl think they don't have enough milk if the baby fusses at the breast or seems insatiable (normal behavor during a growth spurt), or if their breasts don't feel engorged (normal breasts continuously make milk, the early engorgement is a result of over supply once it regulates engorgment is rare), or they don't get much with pumping (pumps just aren't as efficient as babies and some women can't be stimulated much by it, but that is NOT an indicator of milk production levels). Or supply gets low because people erroneously use medications that have side effects on lactation, or supplement with formula or bottles too much or at the wrong times, or people try to put a breastfed baby on a formula feeding schedule which is bad for supply.
