I bottlefed DD1 because at 3do she was starving. I had no milk, so I had to feed her formula. Once my milk came in she was already content with formula so that's what she was fed.
When #2 came along I had decided to bottlefeed as it worked for #1. I tried to breastfeed her in the hospital but she wasn't even 6 hours old and wouldn't feed off me.
Now, I'm flicking throught the Advertiser this morning (local free newspaper in Shellharbour/Kiama NSW) and there's an article saying "breastfed babies are best". There's something else about how breastfed babies are less likely to be hospitalised in the first 12 months than bottlefed babies.
Hospitalised for what? #1 has never been hospitalised, and #2 is 10mo and hasn't been hospitalised.
Where do they come up with this rubbish??!! I'm sorry, I know some people won't agree with me, but I'm really fed up with having breastfeeding shoved in my face like that.
