I know I am going to breastfeed when I have a baby but I just wanted to know the benefits. What are the benefits to formula feeding? And what are the cons to both?

Check out this site about the 101 reasons to breastfeed. http://www.promom.org/101/ Reasons why formula is never the way to go (sans medical intervention). http://www.babyreference.com/InfantDeaths.htm
There are very few cons to breastfeeding and very few pros to formula feeding. Breastfeeding cons would be the fact that breastfeeding while natural doesn't always come naturally. It may take some work and perseverance BUT all you have to do is look into babies eyes and you will know you can overcome anything for that precious being. The pros for formula ALL center around what is best for mom and dad without any consideration for baby.
