Breast feeding Vs. Formula feeding
When becoming a parent, there are many decisions that have to be made before the baby is even born. The most important decision is whether a mother will breastfeed or formula feed her baby. Breastfeeding should be the only option in feeding a baby unless there is a medical reason for why a mother cannot. When deciding on how she will feed her baby, a mother should know why formula is used rather than breast milk. She should know why breast milk is so much healthier, and she should be aware that there are several solutions that can ...view middle of the document...

Another reason some mothers do not consider breastfeeding is because it is painful and time-consuming. For me, breastfeeding was very painful for the first month. “Many women interviewed, even those who initially or eventually deemed breastfeeding to be an active element of mothering, cited both short- and/or long-term physical challenges of breastfeeding. This analysis focuses on the 33 women (63% of all women who breastfed) who discussed pain and/or discomfort associated with breastfeeding and explores four main findings.” (“The physical challenges of early breastfeeding,” 2006, para. 18 paragraph). A lot of women say breastfeeding should not be painful at all, but all women’s bodies are different, and no one person is the same. The level of pain is based on how the baby is positioned on the mother’s breast and how the baby is latching onto the nipple. This can cause chapped nipples and tears in the skin. There are many factors that could affect a good outcome of breastfeeding. When it comes to being time consuming, yes it can take a good bit of time, but isn’t it worth it for your child? Most mothers consider this time a good time to bond with their new baby; this is the time that a lot of mothers wish that they could have.

Specific Medical Considerations
When a baby is born, one of the first things that a mother does for her child is feed it. There are some women that would love to breastfeed their baby, but their bodies just aren’t capable of doing this natural thing. There are several conditions that could affect whether or not the mother will be able to nurse their baby naturally. Some women are unable to produce the milk that they need to build, and other women have trouble with the way their nipples are shaped. “There is very little research on the problem of breast milk insufficiency, and the subject is cited as one of the main reasons for stopping breastfeeding in many articles. Of note, most of the journal articles on this subject include the wording of "perceived breast milk insufficiency," reflecting that the medical community has yet to fully identify a physiologic reason for a lack of breast milk production in women. More research is needed.” (“Your Questions Answered,” 2007, p. three par 3). The lack of milk supply can be very frustrating and depressing to a new mother. She should know that she is not alone that there are millions of parents that are going through the same exact thing that she is going through. Not being able to produce breast milk does not make a woman a bad mother. The way a woman’s nipples are shaped can affect the way she nurses her child. There are several types of nipple abnormalities. There are nipples that go inward instead of outward, flat nipples, and large nipples. No, it won’t make nursing impossible, but it will make for a very difficult and frustrating time.
Women should know why breast milk is so much healthier
Breastfeeding is so much healthier and more natural for your baby.
