Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When it comes to feeding your baby every mother wants the best. It is a very basic instinct to want to feed and nourish your baby well. The truth is the best way to do this is in the way nature intended, by breast feeding. It is a convenient method of feeding your child with a perfectly balanced food designed to provide all the nutrients they need.

So why do many women decide breast feeding is not for them? For some new Mother's breast feeding comes naturally, for others it is a battle, especially in the early days. The urge to feed your child can lead to feelings of inadequacy in some women who feel they aren't providing for their child and consequently give up. Sadly this is usually down to lack of support and information, with perseverance most women can easily feed their baby.

For others it is due to outside influence, misinformed ideas and pre conceived opinions. Don't be swayed by others, or friends who tell you not to breast feed as they didn't. Some women refuse to breast feed as they would feel too embarrassed to feed in public. In recent years breast feeding has become more acceptable and, if you prefer, you will find discreet feeding rooms and specially designed clothing to provide help protect your modesty.

If you find breast feeding painful, it is usually down to poor positioning of your baby at the breast, this can be resolved easily by consulting professional advice. There are creams that you can use after each feed to help reduce discomfort.

For some women, breast feeding is not for them, it is important that a woman is not made to feel guilty in any way, it is their child and their decision. Luckily baby Formulas have advanced over recent years and provide excellent nutritional quality.

With bottle feeding comes expense, choosing a suitable Formula, purchasing bottles and sterilising equipment. It can be time consuming, cleanliness is paramount to avoid upset stomachs, preparing feeds and having to be organised when travelling. Finding places to warm the milk can also be a challenge, however the advantage is you can get others to feed your baby.

The benefit with breast feeding is that the baby has a ready supply on hand and you can avoid all the preparation issues. In the early weeks your baby gets protection via the milk from your immune system and helps in fending off illness. Night feeding is simpler and as baby does not have to wait for bottles to be warmed they can be settled faster back to sleep.

With both methods of feeding always monitor your child's weight gain to ensure healthy development, discuss any concerns with your doctor.
