Baby Milk

For the first four to six months of a baby’s life, the only nutrition they need is milk, either from their mothers breasts or infant formula.

To breastfeed or to bottle feed?

Breast feedingIt’s the debate that knows no end. Is it better to breastfeed or bottle feed your baby, and will they be any worse or better off in the future if they have one over the other?

Okay, so it’s been scientifically-proven than breast is certainly best for many different reasons. And then there’s the argument about giving your baby formulated milk, when you produce it naturally yourself. In some ways, it’s a no-brainer. Yet some mothers simply can’t breastfeed, or find the whole idea of letting their baby feed from them quite uncomfortable, and so this is what we think: mothers shouldn’t be made to feel guilty either way – it’s their choice.
