Ok.. So heres what im thinking.. We all know that breast milk is sposta be better for the baby.. But what if your one of those people who have a hard time keeping your nutrition level good? I mean I can never eat properly.. Im too damn picky.. So I was woundering after I have reese would it be healthier for him if I put him on formula if I know I will have a hard time eatting properly?
Yeah but shouldnt his nutrition be more important then antibodies? Cause if he isnt getting the right nutrition he wont be healthy... Should I do maybe abit of both to insure hes getting antibodies and nutrition?
I breastfed for about 6 weeks with elisa and stopped because of the pai it caused me with cam I breastfed for three days and said they f*ck with it....
Anyways babys can still build their immune systems but colostrum is just easier for them, both my kids thrived better on formula and tended to be happier kids, the only problem I had is they had more gas with formula..
Only negative I could say was the gas, once their digestive system gets better formula sits better on them..
Nutritionally breast milk is superior. Formula is second best. It's just a fact, the milk you produce is produced especially for your child with everything baby needs.
I actually personally find it a pet peeve when women decide against breast feeding before baby even arrives for the reason that they "just don't want to do it". I get a little ticked when girls don't even try... It seems selfish and lazy.
If you don't produce enough milk that is a different story. If it hurts I would actually stick with it, cause it can only get easier, and it's all for baby's sake. I think mothers should atleast attempt to breastfeed. Part of becoming a mother is personal sacrafice and I think breastfeeding (when it's a hassle as it can also be an amazing bonding experience when it is going smoothly) is included in that.
Breastfeeding is very controversial and some women feel very badly (and guilty) when they can't do it, or they choose not to.
It is a personal decision. Very personal. Everyone has their different views and we can only make decisions for our own selves.
You do whatever you think is best for you. If you are not a healthy person, then formula feed. Breastfeeding doesn't come easy for everyone and it isn't always the 'best' option - any doctor will tell you that.
If you suffer from ppd, have to take medication, or your milk doesn't flow as it should - do not feel guilty for that. Your baby will do just fine whether it is breastfed or bottle fed.
