The Advantages of Bottle Feeding
When a newborn baby appears in your life it becomes a great responsibility for you. And as all parents you want to give the baby the best you have.
In spite of the fact that you really want to feed your baby with your breast milk some circumstances can be not in your favor. A mother can be forced to wean her baby because of the medicine that she has to take as a treatment in case she gets sick. Some nervous shock might stop milk flow and in this case breastfeeding becomes impossible. Taking contraception while nursing can be harmful to baby too. And here bottle feeding is the only thing which can help the situation.
The main advantage of formula milk is that a mother always knows exactly how much her baby has had and therefore how much nutrition the baby it getting while a nursing mother only can make conjectures about it, and become really concerned about whether the baby has had enough. And this is the reason why bottle fed babies don`t need to eat as often as breast fed ones, because of the nutrition - milk protein in formula which keeps baby full and satisfied longer.
It is also very ill-considered to ignore the fact that many women might sink into despair after giving birth to a baby. Their bodies are not nice as they were before and moreover now moms have to eat for two and the food should be fatty to make the milk more nutritious so it might increase their weight and make them really unhappy. This can give them a feeling of body-enslavement. In this case formula milk can contribute to a better relationship between mother and baby.
There is another problem which might appear while nursing a baby-your habitual food. The breast fed mother cannot drink caffeine, alcohol or eat spicy or rich foods because that all goes through to the baby with the breast milk and can be very harmful to the little one.
