Whether you're unable to breastfeed or are supplementing with infant formula, many formulas imitate some of the countless benefits of breast milk in order to optimize your baby's growth and development.
There are many other reasons that women choose to bottle feed their baby.
Bottle feeding allows for the father to be involved and the feeding responsibilities to be shared.
There is more Freedom. Bottle-feeding doesnít tie the mother down to her baby. Working, traveling and even sleeping are more easily done.
Some women who breastfeed complain that it interferes with their sex life. The lactation hormones that are stimulated by breastfeeding keep the vagina relatively dry. Some couples even complain that leaky breasts can be a turnoff during sex.
Women who bottle-feed also have more freedom with respect to the types of foods they can have.
Whether you choose to bottle-feed or breastfeed it all comes down to whatís best for your baby. So talk to your doctor about the benefits to both to help make the best decision for you and your baby.
