  • Definitely breast feeding! I love it! It's a bit painful at first, but i really enjoy that time with my babies.

  • I breastfed for the first couple of months, then my milk supply went way down, so I had to formula feed.

  • Breastfeeding, if you can manage it. It isn't easy for everyone. And pumping at work just isn't an option for a lot of women. But if it is doable, then definitely breastfeeding. It is worth a serious try at least. Even a few months is better than nothing I think.

  • Breastmilk is the IDEAL food for human babies, but sometimes it is not the ideal option for all families. If you let us know why you are thinking of not then we can be a little more specific with our answers.

  • For sure breastfeed! I breastfed my ds 13 months and my dd 14.5 months and would do it again! It is a great way to bond and it's the best thing for your baby and you. And, it's FREE!!!!
