OKay.. to end this breastfeeding/ formula feeding debate... question for breastfeeding moms (KINDA LONG SORRY)?
If I said that i formula feed by choice - and my choice being that i have done it because i was unprepared to be a mommy and had so much anxiety about it... in addition to postpartum depression.. I formula fed so i could take medication to help me provide my son with the best care. And so that my husband could help - who also thought in our situation formula feeding would be best.
I KNOW that breast is best.. and i give all mommies who do it so much credit! With my next I'm going to try it.. now that I am comfortable with caring for a newborn... and have learned so much as a mommy and how there are benefits with breastmilk that my son could never get with formula feeding.
However, there are still benefits to formula feeding... but even formula companies tell you on the can that 'breastmilk is best.' So basically.. is it the moms who won't give it a chance just because they don't feel like it that bother you? Sorry.. im just curious. I've gotten thumbs down for my answers simply because the world formula was in it...
