Breastfeeding will Always be the best choice for your baby. No matter what anyone says I truly believe this.
ANYWAYS HERE ARE THE PROS:
-Breast milk is the perfect food for baby, with numerous advantages over baby formula, especially in the first four months or so. Here's why:
-It contains active infection-fighting white blood cells and natural chemicals that give increased protection against infections in the first months, when these can be the most serious.
-It can help prevent SIDS, sudden infant death syndrome, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
-It contains the perfect proportion of nutrients that your baby needs, including protein, carbohydrates, fat, and calcium.
-It is easily digestible.
-It may protect against allergies and asthma in the future.
-It may decrease a baby's risk of obesity in the future.
-It may contain some fatty acids that promote brain development.
Some more good stuff about breastfeeding :
-Breastfeeding can help new mothers lose weight more easily.
-It's always available. (because it comes from your breasts)
-You get to bond with baby since it is skin to skin contact.
-First 6 weeks are the hardest when it comes to breastfeeding because you and your baby are getting used to each other and used to breastfeeding.
-Breastfeeding is more bonding time with mommy and baby. When you are formula feeding daddy can do it too and bond with baby.
-If you don't have a lot of time on your hands, breastfeeding may feel like a hassle to you.
-It may hurt or feel uncomfortable until you get used to breastfeeding.
-If you work , you will have to pump. Pumps aren't cheap.
-If you are stressed (or any mood) the baby can feel it. Example stressful mom equals stressful baby.
-Breastfed babies eat more often so that can be a pro or con.
PROS ABOUT FORMULA -BOTTLE FEEDING:
-Bottle-fed babies need to be fed less frequently since it is more difficult to digest.
-If you are bottle feeding your baby, you know exactly how much milk your baby has had.
-You do not need to be present each time the baby has to be fed; some other family member or friend can also feed the baby.
-Your social life does not need to be curtailed. You can resume your normal life.
-You don't have to wear clothes that accommodate breastfeeding. Breastfeeding moms have to wear nursing tanks and such. You don't have to do that if you bottle feed.
-You can take drugs (aspirin and such) or drink alcohol, energy drinks etc without worrying about the effect on your baby
-In public, bottlefeeding is less embarrassing and easier.
CONS OF FORMULA -BOTTLE FEEDING:
-You will have to get your babies bottle and formula ready in the middle of the night and such.
-Formula can get expensive
-When baby is hungry, he/she has to wait for you to warm up milk.
-Formula is sort of hard on the baby's stomach/digestive system.. They usually are more gassy and have colic because of it.
-Not many benefits compared to breastfeeding.
-Cleaning lots of bottles and nipples can get annoying lol
-You can research more but I feel this is getting a tad long lol
The benefits of Breastfeeding your baby will always outweigh Formula fed babies, because your milk is MADE for your baby. It changes for the baby too. But If you find that breastfeeding is not for you, either because of a medical reason, you can't stand it, you are too stressed doing it, you can't produce any milk, etc than Formula bottle feeding is what is right for you. Always try to breastfeed though if you can, and see if you like it or if it works out. You can always switch if it doesn't work out for you. Good Luck & Congrats

Originally Answered: Breastfeeding moms! Is it good to feed from both sides or just one?
The don't have to feed from both sides, it's just important to offer both, just in case they want it. Babies eat until they are full, and many are quite content with just one side. But always make sure the other side is available to them if they want more. Sounds like you are doing the right things. 6-8 sopping wet diapers and at least 1 poo a day (after 6-8 weeks it is normal for a breastfed baby to go 10 days or longer without a bowel movement - each baby is different).To make sure your supply is very well established, it wouldn't hurt to pump the side that baby didn't eat from
If you supply dried up by 4 months with your first child, chances are the latch was not correct (so not enough stimulation of the breast) or you were supplementing too much with formula (supplementing should be completely avoided for that exact reason, or if you must, wait until at least until 6 weeks of age and as little as possible )
Here are some breastfeeding support sites, they can help with any questions you have about breastfeeding.
BREAST IS BEST! It's SO much better for your baby!! People who were breast fed are said to be healthier over all, struggle less with weight issues, and even learn easier. When you breast feed you also pass along antibodies which create a killer immune system for your baby. It creates SUCH a bond between you and your baby. It's convenient, and makes your boobs stay huge! lol. I didn't make enough milk to exclusively breast feed so I had to supplement with formula. I continued to breast feed until my milk stopped coming in all together when my daughter was 7 months old. She is now a very healthy, very happy, very smart 14 month old! I am a HUGE advocate of breast feeding. (Plus you lose the baby weight SO much faster!! I lost all 40 lbs in 3 months without exercising or anything)

Breast feeding- pros-its free, its easily digestible, it has all the nutrients your baby needs, it can help prevent sudden infant death syndrome, it can help new mothers lose weight easier, it can help prevent obesity for the baby, it can let the baby have less allergies, it has active infection-fighting white blood cells that help prevent infections in the first few months of the babies life which where infections are most likely.
cons- its considered sort of inappropriate out in public
bottle feeding- pros- more sociably acceptable, its reassuring for the parents to see how much milk their baby is actually taking
cons- costs money, it doesn't have all the good nutrients & vitamins that breast feeding has, some bottles could be dangerous, bottles might not get as sterile as they should be, it takes time to make, baby may get fussy waiting for bottle.
hope this helps!

Quite honestly, as long as you are healthy, breast feeding is all pros and no cons. It is free, it is portable, it is always the right temperature, and it almost always comes out in the right quantity. The only real cons are the rare cases if you truly cannot produce enough or if you absolutely need to take medication that makes it unsafe to breast feed. Good luck to you and your bundle of joy.

I definitely did my homework whilst figuring out to nurse or bottle feed. very few mom's understand how time ingesting and draining nursing could be. it fairly is what's great to your toddler and does help you shed some pounds faster, in spite of the incontrovertible fact that it fairly is no longer accommodating to well known mothers. i think of it relies upon on your existence kind. Are you going to be a working mom? keep in mind which you will ought to nurse or pump a minimum of each 4 hours. I ought to pump and refrigerate my milk at artwork. I artwork in a comfortable placing, yet this could be a topic for some. it may additionally ward off you from getting greater help for the duration of the 1st hard few months. i'm so in love with my toddler that i do no longer innovations doing very almost each and all the artwork. keep in mind you won't be in a position to slack on your food. What you consume is fairly what your toddler eats. it fairly is somewhat worthwhile although. it fairly is loose. once you're previous to the sport with milk grant it fairly is frozen and saved, so it fairly is achievable to be away out of your toddler for small quantities of time. i admire the reality that my toddler desires me only that far greater. Feedings are so plenty greater particular. it is likewise advantageous in the time of those overwhelming team family visits whilst i think my toddler desires a destroy. i'm getting to go away the room and nurse him and there is no longer something everybody can say approximately it.

I'm glad you've decided to visit my country (Belarus I mean). There are several ways, how you can obtain a visa.
1. you can apply to any other Belarusian embassy abroad. Not necessarily the one in Warsaw. The nearest to Cyprus is in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
2. in summertime Belarus sends a special consul to Cyprus, who has the right to give visas. You just have to find out, when exactly he comes.
3. if you travel to Belarus by plane, you can obtain a visa right in the airport, here in Minsk. You need to have a tourist voucher and a number of document like passport, the filled-in visa application and a photo of passport size. The complete list of documents you can find on the site of any Belarusian embassy.
In this case you'll have your visa in half an hour or so.
If you apply to embassies it'll take you longer. I guess about 2 weeks, but I don't know exactly. You'd better phone to the embassy beforehand and ask.
Belarusian enbassy in Warsaw:
ul. Atenska 67, 03 978, Warszawa
