What do Bottles and Formula have to do with Breastfeeding?
Breastfeeding mothers may turn to formula and/or bottles for many reasons. Some are already supplementing with formula by bottle when they reach out for help, and for some moms, supplementing by alternative methods may be very overwhelming. Some moms need or choose a combination of breast milk and formula and others may decide to give occasional or regular bottles of expressed milk. Whatever the reason, as health care professionals helping a mother to breastfeed, it is our job to be able to help her to reach her own personal goals even when she needs, or chooses to use, bottles or formula. Learn about baby-led bottle feeding and why it's so important, different types of formula, their uses and how to prepare them, and how this all fits in with the WHO code and our code of professional conduct.
