My son is 6 1/2 months old. He is exclusively breastfed, but also gets cereal, oatmeal, fruit, veggies, and juice. BUT MAINLY BREASTMILK.
I have heard that formula lasts longer. A friend of mine who breastfed her baby gave her baby 1 bottle of formula at night before bed to help her sleep longer and not wake as much in the middle of the night.
I am thinking about doing that, but like i said, he only gets breastmilk. The only time that he got formula was the first 1-5 days after he was born bc he was jaundiced. My worry is that he will like the formula so much that he will reject my breastmilk. I am trying to breastfeed him until 1 year.
Any suggestions, opinions, and insights....would be much appreciated.
