Breastfeeding vs. Formula feeding
Choosing how and what to feed your baby is a personal decision that deserves careful and thorough consideration.
Pros and cons of breastfeeding and formula feeding
Breastfeeding has many advantages.
Breastfeeding is the natural nutritional source for infants less than one year of age. Most health care professionals recommend breastfeeding for your baby’s first year if possible.
Experts agree that breastfeeding your baby for any length of time, regardless of how short, is of benefit to you and your baby.
Even if you are not able to breastfeed exclusively, you can supplement by formula and continue mixed feeding.
