Breast milk vs formula
Breast milk vs formula - I'm all for breast feeding, I prefer it and was absolutely set on doing so before I had my baby. If you're struggling, ask a lactation consultant or your baby's doctor for help. If your baby's doctor is concerned that your baby isn't receiving adequate nutrition or hydration, he or she might suggest supplementing with formula. Breast milk is the ideal food for babies and the best way to keep a baby healthy. Commercial infant formulas don't contain the immunity-boosting elements of breast milk. For most babies, breast milk is also easier to digest than formula. However, infant formula supports healthy babies who have typical dietary needs. A baby who has special nutritional needs might require a special formula. If you're considering formula-feeding, do your research so that you can make an informed decision. Then focus on nourishing and nurturing your baby, consult your pediatrician too.
