Every mother of a newborn baby must make a very personal decision when it comes to how they are going to feed their infant. I was faced with that decision 3 years ago when I had my first son who I named Ethen. It was one of the very hardest decisions I had to make. I had to consider all the good benefits of breast feeding as well as the benefits of formula bottle-feeding, but the good benefits of breastfeeding outnumbered the bottle feeding ones. I finally decided that breast feeding was the best option for my son and for myself, after extensive research on breastfeeding as well as formula feeding, and also taking a breastfeeding class where I received a lot of information which helped me determining what would benefit my infant’s health.

Another way is Ifif a mother isn’t available to feed the baby, she can use a pump to draw out the milk into a bottle and save it until the next feeding. Breastfeeding is done by the mother as she is the one producing the milk directly from the breast except if she has pumped into a bottle, like formula-feeding moms. She can also to feed the infant from a bottle.
