Formula or breast?

Just out of curiosity, are you planning on formula feeding or breast feeding your baby? I personally plan on breast feeding, but, as with my other children, if life changes (I go back to school or I start working again) I may chose to bottle feed later. If you're having multiples, will that affect your decision?

  • I've always bf and have had to supplement some of them. We'll start this time with breast only - like I have in the past - and we'll be flexible to change if needed.

  • Breast. And it's a misconception that colostrum is all they need....it *is* very important, but so is the rest.

  • I'm almost 35 weeks pregnant and still bfing my toddler. I feel very strongly that bfing is best for all babies and wouldn't want to give my baby anything less.

  • I plan to breastfeed. I'll have a nice breastpump, too, so when I go back to work I'll be expressing.

  • I always planned on breastfeeding. My son is 11 months old now and was exlusively breastfed until we introduced solids at 8 months. We're going to continue nursing until he's at least 2 years old.
