I love breast feeding but I understand formula as being the next best thing. My daughter was formula fed from 6 weeks (now 2 1/2) and I exclusively breast feed my son who is 11 weeks.
The joys of facebook... A young woman was sharing how her son sleeps through the night at only around 6 weeks or so. Another woman commented saying thats why we are so lucky we bottle feed, we have babies who sleep all night and are settled all day.
I commented saying I have experienced both and would much prefer to BF. My son is settled he sleeps through most nights, the added bonus is it's free, I don't have to wash bottles, sterilise and prepare them to take when I want to go out. (not in exact words) But I have done both and that is just from my experience.
What do you prefer? and why?
