Breast feeding vs formula!

Margaret - posted on 09/04/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My husband is against me giving any formula to our daughter. Breastfeeding has been a challenge since our daughter was born and she's 7 weeks now and it feels as if my milk production is slowing down. I'd like to keep breastfeeding but she doesn't seem to be getting full after each feed, it feels as if she's feeding all day long. I'd like to start giving a little formula after to make sure she's full for awhile as I do have a 4 year old who needs my attention also. I feel as if my husband has no say in my decision because he isn't the one having to ever deal with her. I'm the one up all night with her and holding her all day. I need some input. Please help!!!

I did not have enough milk as well and my baby got a sever case of jaundice and was rushed to the hospital in the incubator for 2 days. All that because I refused to give formula.

I now only formula feed her. Breast feeding is the best nutrition for your child. As you said you also have another child to take care of and a house to maintain...

I would continue doing what you do supplement if you want to continue breast feeding, but formula feeding is just so easy...
