Should I Breastfeed or Bottle Feed?


Breastfeeding is widely recommended as the healthiest way to feed your newborn, but it comes with some barriers and challenges. Bottle feeding is a fine alternative. The choice of whether to breastfeed or bottle feed is totally up to you. It's one of the touchiest subjects for new mothers, so be kind to yourself about whatever decision you make, tune out other people's judgments, and be open to changing plans if you need to. Learn more about breastfeeding and bottle feeding, and watch this Cloudmom video for all you need to know about bottle and feeding essentials.
