Feeding your Baby

Feeding your Baby

How do I decide whether to breast-feed or bottle-feed my baby?

Most women will probably think about this before the actual birth. Many will be influenced by the experiences of those closest to them, such as their own mother or their friends.

There are a lot of myths about breast and bottle-feeding. The most important thing to do is become fully aware of the pros and cons of both types of feeding. Then you can make an educated choice on which type will best benefit both you and your baby.

It is important to note that if you are breast-feeding but it doesn't seem to be working, you can switch to bottle-feeding. However if you begin with bottle-feeding, you cannot later change to breast-feeding because your breasts will stop producing milk if they are not stimulated by the baby.
