There are many advantages to formula feeding. A mother should read as much as possible on the subject and talk to the doctors for recommendations on starting bottle-feeding.
In order to help you on your decision, here are some advantages as to why formula feeding is a good idea.
It is really convenient. Why is that so? You might ask, well, the reason is because formula is relatively easy to prepare. All you need is a bottle, the formula product and water. It is simple, easy and makes life better because your spouse is now able to help out with the feeding. Now that, is something all mothers want right? To be able to not worry about your child for a short while and allow your spouse to bond with the child. In other words, to get that sleep back!
It is diet free. What? Yes. You heard it right. You do not need to worry about your diet affecting your milk and in turn affecting your child. No more restrictions on alcohol intake or your favorite fish. No worry of not having a good meal or that luxurious chocolate bar that you had your eye on. The only diet is the diet you want to be on.
There is a variety of newborn baby formula. Many leading companies provide high quality formulas that are approved by major health organizations for parents to choose from. With competition, products are naturally created to provide the best possible combinations of nutrients for your child to increase business. This will only benefit families who are looking for better pricing and not sacrificing the quality of formula for their newborn child.
With such good benefits resulting from formula feeding, it is no wonder, why many families have decided to start on this option in addition to breast-feeding.
