Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

Am I a bad mommy if I don’t breastfeed? How will it affect my baby?

Re: Am I a bad mommy if I don’t breastfeed? How will it affect my baby?

The Bump Expert

Of course you’re not a bad mommy… but do give nursing a chance. The American Academy of Pediatrics strongly recommends breastfeeding for the first year, and exclusively for the first six months. A mother's milk contains the ideal nutrients, enzymes and antibodies for baby. Breastfed babies are less likely to have diarrhea, ear infections, respiratory illness, allergies, stomach bugs and colds. Plus, nursing decreases future risk of obesity, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, childhood leukemia and other forms of cancer. And, it's a great way to bond with baby. Need more? Studies link breastfeeding to higher IQs.

There are perks for you, too. Six months of formula will set you back about $500… breastmilk, not a penny. It’s always available, requires no preparation, and comes out at the perfect temperature. Worried about losing the pregnancy pounds? Yep, breastfeeding will help. It’s also been linked to decreased breast and uterine cancer and osteoporosis rates, helps you heal more quickly down below, and works (not perfectly!) as birth control. At the hospital, a lactation consultant can help you get comfortable with the nursing process. Your local La Leche League also offers support.

That said, if breastfeeding just won't work for you, skip the guilt trip. As long as you take good care of baby, the best fuel you can feed her is love.

re: Q: Breastfeeding Benefits?

I am very grateful to be able to breastfeed my son- but it hasn't been easy. He had several anatomical features which made it difficult for him to latch properly, and I did too. Then he developed a sucking abnormality and he began chomping out milk instead of sucking- very inefficient for him and painful for me. Everyone around us said "bottle feed" and acted like I was a bad mom for continuing to breastfeed. The rediculous part is that a baby who can't suck can't take a bottle (chomping milk from a breast is more effective than chomping from a bottle), nor did he want to! It was in fact his incredible desire to nurse and the insticts to do so which ultimately helped him overcome his inability to suck. Now he nurses great and is growing faster than any weed I've ever seen. If breastfeeding doesn't work out well in the beginning YOU CAN STILL DO IT and there is lots of great help out there besides your hospital's lactation consultant (often not enough help). We found a lactation clinic which made all the difference in the world to us.

re: Q: Breastfeeding benefits?

As long as you are caring for your child the best you can, no, it won't make you a bad mommy. I, personally, would say definitely breast-feed though... it's so much healthier for your child and gives them more than any manufactured formula ever could. I'm a firm believer that nature, God, your Creator, whatever you want to call it knew what they were doing when they made us like all other mammals to take care of our young. I wouldn't trade it (even the hard parts) for anything as the bonding time with DS is amazing! I encourage you to at least try to breast-feed for one month before nixing it though... that's how long it usually takes to get the hang of it.

re: Q: Breastfeeding benefits?

Just to point out...by the time I was done buying a good breast pump-used on ebay-, nursing bras, breast pads, lanolin, nursing tank, a boppy I added it up (and this is without any nursing shirts for nursing in public more easily/discreetly) we spent $300 and time running from store to store just looking for nursing bras! On the other hand, I have almost 6 months worth of formula--that has been either free or purchased for less than $1.00 a can! And, you can buy Kmart or Target or Walmart brand formula for less than half the cost of Enfamil/Similac! So the arguement that it is cheaper--not always so.

mommy42115 |

re: Q: Breastfeeding benefits?

nursing tanks, pumps, boppies and other things are not always necessary... so pricing for those things although nice- not necessary.. i bought two regular pillows for nursing instead of a boppy - boppy 35 bucks at target, regular pillows which i can use after i'm done nursing 5 bucks apiece... it just depends on what you want to do, even though babies can build up a healthier immune system when breastfed for at least 6 months... its personal preference, do what works for you!

Breastmilk in a bottle?

I am breastfeeding and giving my baby (pumped) breastmilk from a bottle. Is anyone else doing this? I worry that it isn't the same, but my baby wasn't getting enough to eat at the breast so we had to attach a bottle as well.

etristan |

re: Q: Breastfeeding benefits?

I am pumping my milk to feed my baby (who is now 2 months old). I alternate between my milk and formula so I can store away enough milk in the freezer for when we are out visiting or she is at her babysitter's house. I'm told formula is a bit more concentrated and I usually feed her formula before bedtime. It's hard to know how much they get when they breastfeed. Seeing a quantity for me is much easier to know how much I should prepare for her in advance when we are not home.

re: Q: Breastfeeding benefits?

what everyone is forgetting to tell you is that breastfeeding extremely hurts. so you are going to need dedication and patience to do it. i've been bf for 10 days now and the nipples are falling apart! but i'm still doing it...

re: Q: Breastfeeding benefits?

I am currently breastfeeding as well and my little one is almost 10 weeks old. I will be going back to work in 3 weeks and am worrying that I won't be able to keep up with the supply and demand. I sometimes feel the pressure to continue to breast feed even though I feel sometimes I'm always doing it. I wish DH would realize that sometimes it would be easier if we switched to solely giving the little one formula.

mhouston |

re: Q: Breastfeeding benefits?

deelite2333, I don't know if you're still having problems with nursing, but get to a lactation consultant ASAP- it's probably not supposed to hurt as much as you say. The baby may be latched on badly, you may have an infection or other problems, but anything more than slight discomfort should be discussed with a lactation pro.To the topic: formula feeding moms are not inferior or selfish- but nursing rocks, and should be given a try whenever feasible.

re: Q: Breastfeeding benefits?

My daughter is about 6 weeks old now, and although I set it in my mind that she would be breast-fed, it hasn't always been easy. Yes, it hurts....but it shouldn't be unbareable. My daughter was born about 3 weeks early, and lost well over 10% of her birth weight before we left the hospital. Her doctor was concerned at her 2 week visit that she hadn't gained enough back. It took us 4 weeks to regain her weight, several doctors visits, and lactation visits to be sure she was getting enough.....but she's finally on the right track. I say the breast is the best, but if for some reason you can't breast feed, don't beat yourself up over it.

tya_1982 |

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

My little sweet boy is almost 4 months old and I guess I've been lucky. No sore breasts. I think that depends on making sure he latches on right. Lactation books or specialists from the hospital helped me learn the right way to keep him latched. As far as going back to work. I've been back for 4 weeks now and keeping up with pumping is the answer of production. I pump every 2-3 hours. It is very challenging to go on breaks and eat and pump at the same time, but if you keep pumping you'll keep producing and yes, it's beneficial for baby's health and cheaper (only pay for the breast milk bags). One key to production also is drink plenty of water and eat well. Hope this helps. And keep asking questions to other mom's who have gone thru it.

My son is 13 days old and i've been BF, i've had the sore nipples and found the perfect product....Medela's SoftShells for sore nipples, they're available at Target/BRUs and other places online...a bit pricey at $14 or so, but soooooOOo Worth it, they're provide a shield from anything rubbing against them when you're not BF. I didn't think I would have been able to go more than a week without these! Icing after BF also helps alot!

My daughter Precious Jewel is 11 weeks now. I've been breastfeeding since day 1. I want to put her on the bottle but am attached. I love breastfeeding! I mustve been lucky to because I only had to use the lil bottle of lanoil the hospital sends home with you and my nipples have been fine since. I love it because its so much easier and the formula smells bad! I think its going to be hard getting her on the bottle if i decide to. How long does the transition take?

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

I've been giving my baby girl breast milk for over 9 months now. I made the commitiment to my baby. It hasn't been easy at times, but I look at her and it keeps me going strong. She's been so healthy since birth and I really believe it's because of the breast milk! I went back to work in May 2010 and I pumo all my milk now to feed her daily. I pump onmy lunch break. It's been a challenge, but well worth it!

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

maryblue, I've found that the first chunk of weight comes off rather easily, and the rest is a little bit slower. I lost half my pregnancy weight right away, and at 6 weeks postpartum I have definitely noticed a decline. weight loss hasn't stopped altogether, but it is a much slower process right now.

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

obviously this was posted over a year ago but for anyone out there feeling that they might not be able to continue breast feeding here is a good website for you to read: www.kellymom.com. And it sucks at first! Believe me it does get easier. I've been breastfeeding for 10 weeks now and I am so glad I stuck with it. There is a small cost at first especially if you are pumping too, but formula is more expensive then breast milk in the long run. I feel like women are not given enough encouragement to continue breastfeeding. It is a badge of honor to feed your child from you body, a blessing and a beautiful act of nature. For all those women out there that can breastfeed their babies but are feeling discouraged, don't give up! You will be glad you stuck with it. I have never met a mom out there who has said, I breastfed my baby and I wish I would have formula fed, but I have met plenty of woman who have said that they wish that they could have or would have tried to breastfeed.

I am 17 year old mother and I've been breastfeeding for almost 3 months now. I believe if someone as young as me can do it this long, then anyone can. I also go to school so my baby get both formula and breast milk. Although I would rather have strictly breast milk, I hope to make it to the 6 month mark. My baby is very happy and healthy! :)

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

My daughter (now 1 month old) was breastfed for the first few days. Then we realize that she wasn't getting enough so I pumped and fed her from the bottle alternating with the formula. After 2 week, I gave up breastfeeding altogether because I wasn't producing enough to even really alternate (producing about 1oz per each breast every 4 hours). My DH feels that we should still give her what I can produce even if it's that little but my mother feels considering how little I am producing, it might be more of an inconvenience. Although formula is definitely more convenient for me, I feel like a bad mother for not doing what I can.

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

I have had nothing but problems breastfeeding. I felt so upset that I did not want to do it and that made me feel like I am an unfit mother! Then my brother-in-law's girlfriend told me she was not into it either and that made me feel better and I'm glad I had someone to just tell me that its okay to feel that way, but I stuck with it. The first 3 weeks of my baby's life i had to pump because she would not breastfeed. At first my supply was low and i had to give her formula to make up what i couldn't pump but I just stuck with it and by a week and a half I was pumping more then enough for feedings. Then she finally latched and we breastfed for a month. I though things where good but then got clogged ducts and got and infection in my breast and had to take antibiotics. The doctor had me pumping out all the milk from my breast after each feeding. That was a nightmare! I felt like I was either attached to a pump or nursing! So that cleared up and now I have to start planning to go back to work and I probably won't be about to pump at work (I work 5 1/2 hour with an hour round trip drive) and so I will go 6 hours without feeding or pumping! I just don't know what to do! I want to breastfeed so bad! Even with all the problems I've had it is still so amazing and the closeness I personally feel with my daughter I really don't want to stop and sometimes I just want to stop. Its like a roller coaster ride and all my family tells me is to just put her in formula. Anyone have any suggestions?

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

No you aren't a bad mommy if you breastfeed, however breastmilk is the better option! I love bf my daughter (10 weeks) and enjoy every minute of it!! If you don't want to bf there is always the pump, which is conveient (full time student)! I will say that bottle is easier in public because you don't have to get situated with nursing covers, but that's why I pump! Reasons why I bf is because formula is a trial and error type thing.... I know babies who have had to change formula 5 times and have GI problems, constipation, spitting up etc. My brother even stopped breathing in his sleep because of formula! And its easy to pop your breast out in the middle of the night instead of waking up to fix a bottle and having to warm it.... l mean perfect temp and everything from bf and it's right there!!! Like my mother says: EVERY OTHER MAMMAL DOES IT, WHY DO WE HAVE SUCH A PROBLEM DOING IT OR WHY CAN'T WE DO IT... Just think about the old days before the invention of formula! So at least do it for 2 months!!

amirah0926 |

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

My first time being a mommy I had a hard time breastfeeding and I cried at the middle of the night when I was tired, grumpy, and a hungry baby who was also fustrated because they didnt no how to suck and i didnt no how to get her to suck. I started using a pump instead and gave it to her in a bottle and even though some nurses say try not to give baby bottle or pacifier so they can breastfeed, the bottle (for my baby, they are all different) actually taught her to suck without me hurting!! after a week i tried again and my nipples had healed and the baby had learned so we latched and we continued for one full year. If it wasnt for dedication i probably wouldnt have done it. I also see a lot of mothers give excusing for not breastfeeding but i know deep down they use excuses just to make themselves feel better that they quit trying. never give up unless you doctor specifically says you can not do it for your own health, which is very rare.

missdaisie04 |

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

Maybe I'm just lucky but breastfeeding has been soooo easy and enjoyable. Not only do I get to spend quality time with my baby before I go back to work (she's currently 2 months) but it's healthy for her. I'm pumping to freeze and feeding day and night. She's already sleeping 7-8 hours throughout the night and is extremely healthy and has gained plenty of weight for her age. There has been absolutely NO PAIN because she learned to latch on correctly from day one. If I want to drink which I do at least once a week I test the milk with the Milkscreen tests so I'm comfortable and we are all good. I highly recommend breastfeeding and can't believe that if anyone has the choice they choose not too!!!!

I have been BF for 10 weeks now, n im worried that my baby get sick with my milk, because i eat everything.Lot of person told me that I have to watch out what i eat .do some one knows something about that, please let me know TY.

daniel0308 |

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

I was dead set on breastfeeding before the baby came, and she latched on right away. But due to my c-section the milk came in late and the baby did a lot of vigorous sucking for not much reward. The first few weeks were hellish. I was so upset because everything I read just said it shouldn't hurt but I was having excruciating pain. I was even beginning to dread feeding times. I did change my latch slightly, but I believe that for some people it just HURTS in the beginning. I finally gave up the PRESSURE I put on myself and started to supplement with formula and once I stopped putting pressure on myself, I was able to deal with it more. Now I am breastfeeding almost exclusively at nine weeks. I give my daughter formula at night before bed and in case of emergency when out and about or if I have to leave and have nothing pumped. It is working very well for us. I haven't read much about supplementing with formula, most literature says all or nothing. But my daughter has no problem going from breast to bottle and back. The most important thing to remember is to do what works for you and your family. There is no right and wrong. (Well, I shouldn't say that... some things are wrong but formula feeding isn't one of them!) Just do what works for you and let go of the guilt and enjoy your baby!!

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

I tried breastfeeding for 1 week and my milk was not coming in. I decided, along with my doctor's help, it was best to go to formula/bottle feeding. My son, who is now 20 months old, is a healthy, smart, happy, and energetic little boy. I know there are advantages to breastfeeding but formula is made as close to breastmilk as possible and formula feeding your baby is a healthy alternative. I believe a child's IQ depends on multiple factors such as environment, bonding with parents, bring read to, played with, etc...not whether or not you breastfeed. My child sat up at 5 months, crawled at 6, cruised and climbed at 7 months and walked at 10 months. He is a very smart little boy and I don't believe he has been hindered in development b/c he was not breastfed. The truth is, you have to do what is best for you and your little one. If mommy is happy, baby is happy! Sometimes moms believe so strongly in breastfeeding that they spend weeks/months trying to make it work and skip out on the happy experience of those first weeks/months with your child. Whether you choose breastfeeding or formula, people are going to have their opinions. Just remember, it is YOUR decision and you are nourishing your baby either way. I know kids who were solely breastfed and have been sick many more times than my son who was formula fed. IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE CHILD AND ENVIRONMENT. Good luck!

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

Im not sure how to post my own ? so im leaving it on this post. I stopped pumping for about 2 weeks. Now im trying to get my milk in again and it's just a few drops at a time. How long should it take to get at least a few ounces out of every pumping session? Has my milk dried up? What can i do to increase the supply?

samduley |

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

I breast feed and mix with formula. My milk supply isn't always enough, so I'll give a couple ounces of formula after a feeding. At first I felt bad and beat myself up over it, but then I finally told myself "As long as she's happy and healthy, it shouldn't matter how she eats." I'm happy that she gets breastmilk from me AT ALL, regardless if I provide enough during a particular feeding. I will continue doing what I do for as long as I can, cherish my ability to have bonding time with my child, and maybe soon I won't ever have to supplement with formula after a feeding.

Yasmin1988 |

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

Is is possible that children that are breastfed have a higher IQ than children that are fed baby formula? Is this some sort of unsupported statement by radical breastfeeding supporters? Has our support of breastfeeding outstripped the facts? Some studies show an increase in intelligence for each additional month the child was breastfed, but I don't think that's scientific proof.

kci15 |

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

My son is 10 wks and we have had to formula feed and pump since the first week. he just wasn't getting waht he needed form me. I felt horrible at first, like there was something wrong with me because i couldn't provide for him, but even now, all I produce in a day is about 5 ounces regardless of how often I pump for "supply in demand". So, he is doing just fine on formula and what breastmilk I can provide. As long as your baby is happy, healthy, and growing at average speeds, Don't beat yourself up about waht you can or cannot supply. Your baby will get what they need either way.

It doesn't mean that you are a bad mother if you choose not to breastfeed your baby.There are a lot of baby formulas which are very similar to the breast milk and have a lot of vitamins and minerals.I've recently given birth and I chose to feed my baby with an organic baby formula as I had very few breast milk.

The first month was a struggle and I wasn't getting any support but I never gave up. I used all resources... Breast pump, nipple shields, mothers milk tea, and fenugreek supplements. At about 4 weeks I was successfully bf my LO. I feel so proud of myself for not giving up. I did give my LO formula in the first couple of weeks because I had low milk supply but after taking the fenugreek supplement I was able to bring back my milk supply. Now I'm bf exclusively .

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

I was determined to breastfeed when I was pregnant. None of the girls my age (21) that I work with breastfeed, either because it hurt or it was an inconvenience to them. I just want what's best for my baby and that is my milk and our bonding time. Breastfeeding him takes all the stress from the work day away and it forces me to slow down and just focus solely on him. Thankfully, my son has no problems going from drinking my expressed milk out of a bottle at the babysitter's, to taking the breast when I feed him at home. Yes, the first few weeks were hard but it's easy now and I love it!

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

My beautiful baby girl is currently 3 1/2 weeks old. I have been breastfeeding since she entered this world. When she first latched on I was concerned whether or not the colostrum will be sufficient. I also had a deep concern when the nurse introduced her to a bottle and formula because her billie levels were low and they needed her to make a bowel movement quicker. In addition, after two days I didn't produce any milk. However, after conversing with my laction consultant about my reservations she put me at ease. I learned that women's milk usually contracts after four days of giving birth. Also, it takes patience to breastfeed. Babies only want the bottle because the flow of the milk. You must make your baby work at your breast. After practicing all those helpful tips, my daughter loves to be nursed. It is the most memorable and heartfelt feeling when she turns to my chest with her mouth wide open. It says to me that she needs and wants mommy. I have such a potent attachment to her!!!

breastfeeding-benefits

While I can definitely appreciate your comments on the pros and cons- but has anyone heard of breast hypoplasia? I think it's known as insufficient glandular disorder. I unfortunety have this after being confirmed twice trying to breastfeed both my babies. There is nothing else to describe this as exquisite torture and to read about various stories it's hard to come by one similar to mine. Rather than seeing my babies starve I formula fed after weeks of trying. I would pump and produce 1/2 on ounce from each breast, sometimes not even enough to lightly cover the pump bottle. I would of course put this into the bottle of formula. I know it's twisted and wrong and my babies are thriving, but I feel like half a mother-or some fraction thereof. I would not wish this on anyone. As grateful as I am for my two beautiful babies as I know there are women who cannot conceive or carry a baby of their own, I can't help but to feel cheated and denied this natural and beautiful benefit of being a woman.

So no, I do not think you are a bad mother at all. My first baby was practically EFF and sat up at 6 months, crawled at 7 and walked at 10 months. She was also talking at one year in full and complete sentences, so much do that people were amazed at her age. Always ahead of her development. She didn't suffer because if my lack of milk, but emotionally I sure did.

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

No, it will not make you a bad mommy and will very likely have no effect at all on your baby. There are certainly benefits to breastfeeding but there are also serious drawbacks. Everyone's experience is unique and no one but you can make this decision. So make it, get all the help you can in carrying it out and don't second guess yourself. You're the mommy. You decide.

And just for the sake of perspective - mommies who talk about how much easier it is to "roll over" and nurse in the middle of the night than get up and make a bottle have clearly never dealt with severe nipple pain. Lucky them.

crystalina88 |

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

yes, yu're a ad mom. Why don't you at least try for a month. Babies are supposed to get benefits of human milk, not cow's milk which is designed for baby cows. Women with low or no supply of breastmilk could probably kill you for letting youreslf run dry while they pump every hour and a half to boost their milk. Formula is nothing compared to breastmilk. I have low supply and I tripled it by constant nursing, I have to supplement 1 bottle per day of the formula crap which even in such small amounts managed to turn my baby's stool green and almost constipated. Why would you want a child and then ban it from the best nutrition possible? You'll spend more on doctors too, as formula fed babies get sick more often and stay sick longer. Mine is, knock on wood an image of health. I had sore nipples for first 2 weeks, after that it was plain sailing, love to nurse my baby girl, and nothing soothes her and puts her to sleep better than my breasts. Good luck doing it with a bottle or pacifier, the baby instinctively knows it's not what it wants.

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

Here is the thing. No one really prepares you for how difficult it will be to start breastfeeding. And the one piece of advice I can give you is this...just tell yourself I will give it 6 weeks. If by 6 weeks you still dont want to do it anymore then you can go to formula but at least you know you tried. I made sure not to have any formula in the house so I wasn't tempted and I made it through the six weeks...and I thought okay maybe I can handle another six weeks and see where I am then. I now have a 5 month old baby that has been breastfed the whole time and whenever I pump and store some in a bottle for her to eat it just takes longer (heat the bottle and eating form the bottle takes about 15+ minutes whereas breastfeeding takes 5) so now I think I will stick to breastfeeding if I can for one year...its just faster and easier and less things to carry when I go out.

Oli_via |

Q&A: Breastfeeding benefits?

As long as you are caring for your child the best you can, no, it won't make you a bad mommy. I, personally, would say definitely breast-feed though... it's so much healthier for your child and gives them more than any manufactured formula ever could. I'm a firm believer that nature, God, your Creator, whatever you want to call it knew what they were doing when they made us like all other mammals to take care of our young. I wouldn't trade it (even the hard parts) for anything as the bonding time with DS is amazing! I encourage you to at least try to breast-feed for one month before nixing it though... that's how long it usually takes to get the hang of it. omega replica
