Breast or Bottle Feeding
Sustainable products are made to last, while low-quality, less durable products are disposed of at a greater rate, contributing to high levels of waste.
Health professionals agree that breast milk has unique benefits for your baby. It’s ideal for newborn feeding as it contains antibodies and it changes according to baby’s needs. Breastfeeding is also a very special experience that helps strengthen the bond between you and baby. Plus, it’s the cheapest way of baby feeding.
Even if you’re breastfeeding, Dad can get involved if you mix breast and bottle feeding. That can mean breastfeeding along with giving breast milk in a bottle, or a combination of breast milk and formula.
To do this, you’ll need a breast pump to collect milk, and bottles to store it in so that others can feed your baby.
For many reasons, some mums decide not to breastfeed. It’s your decision and nothing to feel guilty about. In any case, breastfeeding won’t be a happy experience if you don’t want to do it. Infant formula will give your baby all the essential elements that he needs to grow, so don’t worry.
