Yes.  Breastmilk tastess better.  Formula can constipate, while breastmilk is a natural laxative.

Yes. Breastmilk is all natural and formula is artificial and not made for humans.

Formula us heavy, hard to digest, and tastes gross. Breastmilk is the opposite.

Been super fussy, sometimes when you go to move him, he'll start crying loudly... not like a normal cry, sounds like he's in pain... he's had 2 slimy runny yellowish diapers today,I think thats all, he may of had a couple more, but mostly lots of pee diapers... some of those were super full... he could be gassy, sometimes it takes awhile for him to burp, and sometimes we get really no burps...I still have like over 30 oz of breastmilk in the freezer, and I still haven't stopped breastfeeding completely... I start working at a new job friday @ 8am... I have the playtex dropins bottles(only have 2) and slow flow nipples, problem is he hates them... Definitely a booby baby... any othdr bottle I should try that he may like better...???

Maybe switch to a different kind/brand of formula? I had to do the same when I returned to work as well. I tried a couple different kinds and brands of formula. My daughter never got fussy - she just would spit up a lot more than usual.

Pump at work and then give him your milk in a bottle. No need to give him formula. Your job is legally required to allow you time and a private place to pump.
