I agree with the above poster. There are guidelines put in place for safety reasons. SIDS is reduced by having a baby sleep on their back. As for weaning, the guideline says 17 weeks is the earliest. I don't think it's safe to give a baby rice in a bottle from three weeks to get them to STTN.
As for breastfeeding and formula feeding, who cares? Breastmilk is tailored to a baby's needs, but formula will suit in cases where a mother is unable to BF. I'd like to see more education on BFing and more informed doctors because I believe that would lead to more moms succeeding in BFing. However, I'd rather a baby be fed than neglected and ignored
I only gave him expressed breast milk for four weeks before completly switching to formula, breastfeeding didnt work out and I was simply not producing enough per session leading to a very hungry grumpy baby... best decision I ever made to change...
I suck his dummy when it falls on the floor in the house.
cant think of anything else but Im sure theres more lol.. we can only do our best! What works for one doesnt work for another! x
