Were his chances of SIDS moderate because he was receiving bm full time or on the same level as a ff baby.

    HOW does bf reduce sids?
    Quoting my earlier post for you:

    It's more to do with protective factors reducing minor infections among bf babies. I actually thought the same as you until just now when curiosity prompted me to look it up. It seemed ridiculous that SIDS guidelines would be based on something bordering on insignificant.

    As beebs said, there is genetics to consider. There are also confounding factors like exposure etc. who knows, maybe if bottle fed, your DS may have been even more prone to illness, maybe it would have been the same. There's no way to tell. But generally, the immunological benefits of bf are well documented.

    Formula. The thought of my child being fed another woman's milk feels wrong to me.

    My daughter had tongue tie and needed extra than what she could get out if me, also expressing yielded next to nothing.

    I managed to source donor milk and would use that first before I used the formula.

    If I was a women who could not breastfeed I'd give my own EBM if I didnt make milk or could not make enough I'd supplement with donated EBM. If I could not source donated milk (unlikely given my network) I'd be forced to give formula which is most definitely not something I would be happy with. I would do everything in my means to use DEBM before formula.

    How do people source donor milk? We aren't in a major city, and the stock at the hospital would be for premmie bubs or newborns with medical problems wouldn't it? The smaller hospitals I mean. We're about 800km from a major hospital, and I don't have a lot of parents in my network of friends and colleagues.

    I went to formula and I would do it again if I had similar problems as last time.

    Personally I would have been able to source donor milk as I am part of a close knit homebirth community, 90% of whom are breastfeeders.

    There are pages on FB I believe, but it seems to work much better if you have some close friends or even better family as donors, rather than having to rely on what is on offer at random.

    If say my sister was having trouble breastfeeding, I'd probably even look into inducing lactation to help out. (I'm a proven milk tanker )

    Approximately 50% of my donors were friends or friends of friends, many who created an oversupply in order to pump for me. Other milk I sourced via Human Milk For Human Babies. I've sourced most milk from my local area as well as interstate - family would deliver a shipment of milk each time they visited.

    Milk sharing has been an incredibly positive experience for our family - I have experienced first hand the love and support of like-minded friends and strangers who have understood the benefits of breastmilk beyond that of simple nutrition. And the experience has healed the pain I feel of not being able to breastfeed my children in the traditional way, as I have been able to provide my son at least with the best I possibly can via the generosity of donors.

    And being able to give the donor via a supply line at the breast has been as close to normal as I could get

    Having fed one baby with formula via a bottle, and one with donor milk via a supplementer, I will choose the latter again next time if at all possible

    Thanks for responding. I actually did some googling. Fascinating. Probably still not something I would do since there are really not many people having babies which was the same when my girl came along aw well which mean t no breastmilk readily available from people I knew.
