To Breastfeed or not?

To all pregnant mommies out there, have you decided already if your are going to breastfeed or bottle feed your baby? I think this is one of the decisions we have to make before we give birth. I remember the moment I gave birth to Gabz, the nurse has to asked me if I want to breastfeed her and I said yes. Unfortunately, I was not able to do so because of some complications.

This time though (crossing my fingers), I hope I could finally do it with baby Andi. Though Gabz grows up to be healthy, mothers milk is still the best for me. I have read that breast milk:

  • contains nutrition for growth and development of the baby
  • It is easier for babies to digest
  • is always available at the right temperature
  • babies have fewer allergies and infections
  • and the best thing for moms is, it stimulates your uterus to shrink and return to normal size more quickly.
Aside from that, you will have plenty of time to bond with your baby!

for me, i want to breastfeed as much as possible. but with Baby Gab, I wasn't able to do that because she didn't want to. but I'll try with the new baby, it's different when baby is breastfed than bottlefed.
