    Default What do you love about bottle feeding?

    Oh yes I forgot to add:

    - not having to eliminate anything from my diet! Very selfish one but the thought of cutting out caffeine or dairy fills me with dread!

    Oh another thing I forgot about - one on one time with the girls. It's the only time where I don't feel guilty that one is getting more attention than the other.

    I liked that it meant no physical pain from me.

    I also liked that it meant I could track how much she was feeding. I never "felt" let-down so I was always unsure if she was sucking for comfort, or actually feeding. I had no way of telling because I couldn't feel a difference either way. With a bottle, the amount she drank was obvious.

    What's with the name change of this section? Is celebrating bottle feeding somehow wrong?

    Celebrate Bottlefeeding this morning, 'Bottlefeeding Only' this afternoon.

    Cheers

    Yes, it feels like a kick in the teeth.

    I've emailed Veve to ask for an explanation as to why it's changed.

    My 4 month old is combination fed. The main thing I love about bottle feeding? I can feed her anywhere, and in a COMFORTABLE position at that :O

    She's ridiculously fussy with breastfeeding, which means I can only breastfeed laying down in a dark room in an uncomfortable position.

    Bottle feeding though, I can take her out and not have to rush home before she gets hungry. I can even sit and have a conversation whilst feeding her since I don't have to put 100% of my attention towards feeding

    So so glad to have the options of formula and bottle feeding available!
