Watch more Newborn & Baby Development videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/506146-Formula-Feeding-vs-Breastfeeding-Baby-Development Parents always want to know, "What should we do? Formula or breast milk?" As a pediatrician, I always recommend breast milk and breastfeeding, although that's not the right answer for every single family. What I like to recommend is happy baby, happy mother, happy mother, happy baby. I will never force a mother to breastfeed who does not want to breastfeed. We do know that breast milk offers fantastic protection for a baby's immune system. The immunoglobulins that get transferred from the mother to the baby stay with the baby for the rest of their life. The gut is colonized initially and the baby is much less likely to get diarrheal infections, to get ear infections, much less likely to have asthma. It's protected against a lot of common illnesses in childhood. That being said, not all mothers feel breastfeeding is right for them. You don't have to exclusively breastfeed. Some moms breastfeed during the day and they give formula at night. Some moms alternate and some moms don't breastfeed at all. And that's fine, too. The formula that is available on the market now provides a baby with all the vitamins and nutrients as comparable to human breast milk. You have to talk to your doctor - which formula would be right for your baby? We recommend babies who drink formula start with cow's milk formula. If there's something wrong - the baby's not tolerating it, the baby has severe rash or bloody diarrhea - let your doctor know and the doctor will help you choose a different formula for your baby. Babies who are exclusively breastfed at two weeks of age should start Vitamin D drops, 400 units a day. Babies who are on formula do not need to take vitamins because all of the vitamins are supplemented in the formula. Every family has to figure what out is right for them. Society often pressures parents to do things that they might not feel comfortable about, and that's when you need to talk to your doctor. Some moms want to only breastfeed and don't want to pump. Some moms only want to pump and don't want to breastfeed. Whatever is right for you is what you have to do for your baby, because baby will not thrive if the mom or family is not happy.

It's not always a case of '...wanting to breast feed...' This is just reciting statistics just like all of these videos are.

I am for what ever option. You can not tell a woman what to do with her body. An its a shame to see women post hateful comments thats why I don't participate in any women rights movements. Because most women are only looking out for their own interests. Don't disrespect women that don't breast feed today and then turn around tomorrow complaining about getting equal pay as men. Miss me with the bs sis!

feeding baby with something that made by God OR feeding baby with something that make by factory owners, is it really that hard to choose ?
Milkywaycrasher (1 месяц назад)
lee arun But yet the mother just spent 9 months eating factory made food that went straight to the placenta. So what's your point? The most important is that baby is feed.

Is not that I don’t want to breast feed. I really wanted but hurts, baby fell asleep and wakes up crying 30 mnts later ( this is hard in the middle of the night) and I feel she doesn’t eat enough when breastfeeding. I’m trying to pump and breastfeed, but scare to do formula because the bad reviews about that. So I’m stock.

Hello mam My milk supply is low so I started formula milk for my baby. But my doctor suggested me to give buffalo milk added with water to my baby. I am confused can you please suggest me what should I do?

Formula infant abuse. I had to bottle feed I had to go back to work. And I did not produce milk. My kids are very healthy. Never sick or overweight

I am the only one of all my sisters who totally oversaw all three of my kids when they were babies..my first..i was shown and i took it from there..i learned pretty much on my own..i learned to mix and boil the the bottles of infant formula..to feed my baby..and i was pretty much alone..i used my common sense..i was 23.. I didnt have time to worry about anyone else..i did not care about whether my mom did or did not disapprove..she had never approved of me anyway..but i assumed responsibility...then with my second and third...i did it all myself...learned to care..just like with the first..went to doctor when i thought my babies were sick..kept up with all their immunizations..made sure they were always ok...i didnt have a lot of help..not even from the dad..but that is ok..i took responsibility...im their mom...im the one was there..when they took their first steps..when they talked...when they went off to school for the first time..when they started growing up..as for my oldest...i had only a little help..but when he became a teen..his dad stepped back into the picture...he is now a great father to his own kids..most of that was become of me...and my other two..they are pretty good adults..too..for which i am grateful..as for my sisters..they had a lot of help that i didnt get..but their kids have turned out to be pretty decent..too..i guess it was choosing strenghth of character they had to have..and i commend them..and i like them..and i love them..and i love my sisters nevertheless..i have great love for them..we get along..i forgive my late mom for being so shortsighted toward me..none of us are perfect...and i give much credit to god..too.

I completely disagree . Breast feeding should be mandatory by the government unless the mother has a medical reason she cannot do it . Giving children formula is a legal form of child abuse if it is not necessary . If the mother cannot take the pain of breast feeding she should not have a child , I personally suffered all kinds of unessesary ear infections and being sick all the time over the mothers choice because she is lazy to not breast feed her baby . Its nothing but child abuse to use formula if you do not medially have to
Milkywaycrasher (1 месяц назад)
TROLL MMA I have to disagree with you because like she said it is less likely for baby to have problems. Meaning the percentage is low but still is a chance baby can have ear infection etc. No one is completely safe from anything maybe your mom should have made sure she kept your ears clean and did other things to prevent the ear infections. The important thing is the child is getting feed. My siblings and I were not breast feed and we hardly ever gotten sick. We all had perfect attendance in school, honor roll students, and my mom made sure to stay up to date with our regular check ups with our dentist, eye doctor, and pediatrician. You don't know every women's life, so save the anger for your mother.

Milkywaycrasher .. if she does not want to breast feed then why to have kids? And why human body gives milk after birth?

Why you cannot breast feed, if you don't mind me asking?

I was formula fed, I am now 27 years old and the only time I got admitted to a hospital was when I was pregnant. During my schooling days I was never ever off school for being sick. Don't believe the hype. Formula is not a death sentence for your baby!
Sekai Ni Heiwa (4 месяца назад)
ntji reneiloe mathekga i’m suspicious after your second comment . or you didn’t vaccinate your child nor your mother vaccinated you or you are pure liar . some people with mild autism are big liars, unintentionally of course . “even born prematurely “ sounds not so healthy mothers text :)
Sekai Ni Heiwa (4 месяца назад)
No one said it’s a death sentence . if mother don’t have milk maybe it’s an alternative, but still i would create my own formula in the kitchen instead of feeding with rat poison and other synthetic chemicals called vitamins . and that you reached 27 that’s not the achievement . we will talk when you will play second part of your CD at age of 40. I heard people saying babies grow bigger on formula -hmmm Norwegian salmon on formula grows twice of a size as wild salmon , sounds good .;) but they say Norwegian salmon it’s the most dangerous toxic food on the planet . sure we are not gonna eat babies so probably it’s fine :-)

You don't need to give a breastfed baby vitamin C Drops! I've breastfed all of my babies and they never had vitamin c drops - exclusively breastfed babies get everything they need from breast milk.

I was not criticizing Crystal for her difficulty breastfeeding, just the way she put it. She sounds like it's too much of a bother. Even if it is, there are better ways of saying it. Look at her choice of words. It's as though she is wishing the baby weren't so demanding! If I misread what she is saying, I apologize, but that's the impression I get.
Kala Dwarakanath (3 года назад)
Crystal: I do fully understand your predicament, but do you have to put it like that, as if nursing your baby is a chore you would rather not do? I felt bad for you at first, but mulling over your choice of words and the phrases you use to describe the breastfeeding experience, I actually feel bad for your baby instead! The other person is right...do have any more children.

I'm epping very successfully 10 months now. Don't give up on your milk even you can't/won't breastfeed. It's not easy, what is when it comes to kids.

Vitamin D drops? LOL Or you can have them get natural sunlight. All these babies dying of cancer, Gee I wonder why. -_- 
Caters Carrots (1 год назад)
Yeah. The UV light from the sun can produce up to 20,000 IU of vitamin D in an adult. And cancer in a baby I do believe is extremely rare and during childhood, the most common cancer among the children that get cancer is leukemia. Cancer in general though mostly affects adults.

I know it's healthy for the baby but my hubby is getting laid off soon since they aren't making very good buisness and my due date is coming up soon
Crystal Overbaugh (4 года назад)

Because I have work to the way the world is now a days i can't afford to miss any days

Vickie Oglesby (9 месяцев назад)

Cristina .Filipe (1 год назад)
My dear mom, finally a real comment Absolutely All u say is true and it the way it is Don't worry so. Try to work out between u and husband Just sorry I can't help more than that In my case we did all together only because I didn't had breast milk it dried almost immediately after my son was born I knew to the end of the pregnancy even my ADR said I was able to to fill half an inch in a cup Of my milk right at the end of my pregnancy So he had to have formula So we tried to give him by really dividing work as equally as possible Girl please, my maternity leave was so little and went by so fast We need the money badly Plus I enjoy working always have More now I love buying all kind of things for my cutie pie baby :) All the best for u Sincerely
