Breastfeeding vs Bottle(1/2)

New mothers often face an important question, breastfeeding or bottles?

Nutritionally, babies need to get breastmilk as it has all the right nutrients needed for their developing brains and bodies. It is recommended that babies be fed on breastmilk only for the first six months and keep it in their diet until they are at least one to two years old.

However, breastfeeding is not always clear-cut, and many mothers have to opt to feed their babies with formula due to health or cosmetic issues. The decision on how to feed your baby is rather personal; here are a few things to consider for each method.


Nutrition: Breastmilk contains high nutrients that cannot be mimicked by formula. All those immunity-building and bacteria-fighting nutrients are chock-full in breast milk, making it stand out as the pack leader to ensure that your baby has all the vitamins it needs early on to aid in its development.

Cost: Milk comes naturally for women, so the capital cost is non-existent. If we want to get technical, however, ensuring that you eat a healthy and balanced diet can be a tad expensive, but those costs never outrun that of formula.

Bonding: Breastfeeding releases particular hormones between a mother and her child, making it easier for them to bond with each other and kickstart that famous “maternal instinct” we hear so much about.
