I know, I know, I know. It's another one.
I'm reading a book that posed an extrememly interesting question. It asked: if you had to choose between bottle feeding your baby on a schedule with little body contact, but with breast milk in the bottle or breastfeeding your baby on cue with formula coming out of your breasts which would you choose? Would you choose the product of breast milk or the process of breastfeeding?
I understand that you would never have to make this choice, but I found the question so intriguing that I thought about what I would choose. Obviously I love both parts of breastfeeding, the nutrition and the super close snuggles. What part would be more important to you?
If you bottle feed do you prefer to bottle feed baby snuggled up against you? Do you feel that contact is important?
Please play nice, I'm really interested to know what other moms think! :)
