Okay, so I don't mean to offend anyone, truely I don't. I never breastfed with my son who is now 22 months old and once we found the right formula it worked out great. I know breastfeeding is the best and most natural thing. However I'm not sure it's for me. (again please I don't mean to offend). I found that bottle feeding was great in our case, my husband likes it becuz he can feed the baby as well, I can get some rest and when people come for a visit I found as soon as I brought out the bottle, they too wanted to feed. My nieces who were 4 and 6 at the time, also enjoyed holding their cousin and feeding him. I have 2 questions:
1: Did any of you breast and formual feed? If so how did that work out for you. I've been told if you are gonna do both, use a lactose free formula so the changing between both isn't hard on thier tummys.
2: I was also wondering about the best pump out there. We were thinking about pumping and feeding with a bottle and not using formula.
Thank you in advance and please remember this isn't a debate on what's better or natural ect. . . Just a questions about formula, breastfeeding and pumps.
