  Bottle Feeding - Advantages
For various reasons I am unable to breastfeed my baby. I hear so many positive things about breastfeeding. Are there any advantages at all to bottle feeding?

For some women there are feelings or circumstances which make bottle feeding preferable. Formulas have become increasingly sophisticated and are highly nutritious. Babies who are bottle fed take longer to digest their food due to its inherent nature….so the four hour gap between feeds can be a blessing to both mother and baby. Night feeds can be carefully scheduled and helpers can be employed to deal with some of the feeds. In addition you will be able to keep close track of exactly how much formula your baby has drunk – which can be enormously reassuring to a new mother.
