Yesterday my midwife asked me if i would breast or bottle food. Now ofcourse, in any normal circumstance I would say breast feeding but im not quiet sure now because once i have the baby, I will be able to take stronger medication, and that can be transferred to the baby, so now im looking into bottle feeding, and im wondering, have any of you mothers bottle fed from birth? What are the disadvantages? I told my midwife that i would feed my baby no matter what, as long as it was fed then thats the most important thing. She told me that mothers dont usually do both, and i was just thinking "why not" but anyways, she said that i could take pain killers then wait for it to go out of my system then breast feed which im not too keen on doing because if my bub is hungry, im not going to wait!
On another note, I heard that bottle feeding causes obesity? Is that true? I really hope not. I know theres alot of benefits to breast feeding but im thinking maybe bottle feeding is the safest option for me. Any mothers out there who bottle fed? and whats your views on bottle feeding?
