Hollie - your fella will probably like it cos your boobies will be so much bigger too! lol!

My dd had severe reflux - but it's actually a problem with an under devloped tummy muscle rather than anything to do with method of feeding. The grow out of it anywhere up to 18 months. My dd was 9 months. My friend has exclusively bf from day 1 and her ds has just reached 6 months and he also has really really bad reflux! As for colic - we never had to deal with that - but I think that is also just one of those things. Some babies get it and others don't.

I have been exclusivley breastfeeding my LO since birth and started introducing solids from 5.5 months - when LO was showing signs she was ready.

I intend to feed LO up until she's 1 at least and then go from there - may let her self wean - will see how it goes. Although DH does want to TTC in June but I am yet to have a period - which is no doubt down to BF.

I totally intend to BF number 2 as well I love it - I find it such a lovely experience and its easy, convenient and free! lol plus the health benefits for mum and LO.

On the other hand I can understand it's not everyone's cup of tea and everyone is entitled to feed their LO the way they choose to without being thought any less of for it - it's the LOVE thats important at the end of the day - not how you feed your baby.

I would recommend giving it a try at least.

I tried to BF mine, had to express due to his complications from labour, and moved onto formula after he had severe reflux and vomited my supply.

So I'm definitely not against formula, it has really helped save my boy's life - but - it's not the same quality, which means babies on formula are more frequently gassy (it's tough on their tummies), for us that led to hours of crying daily due to tummy discomfort. The gas was by far the worst thing ever, and he still has it occasionally even at 8 months (it was a nightmare for the first 4).

If you read about tummy pains in the BF section and the FF section, you will see quite a lot more threads like that in the FF section.

Good luck with your decision

I am a little uneasy about it and dont think I will to be honest and when I ever say this to anyone I get my head bitten off and get given the vibe that if I dont I'll be a terrible mother!!!

I just think its up to the individual as there are some women who cant and the baby turns out perflectly healthy and with all the new technology there is the formulas are really good. Clearly theres nothing wrong with it if you want to

what do you all think?

But nothing will EVER come close to the real, natural, normal, healthiest thing

well I'm neither pro formula or pro breast but I believe in doing whats feels best for you and I wont argue with anyone on this subject. Its such a personal thing and only you can chose what to do.

Having breastfed myself for a few weeks and then having to give up, I agree the formulas around today are as close as you can get to the real thing, they are packed with nutrients, bar the mothers anti bodies of course, but of course a little one will create their own defence to fight infection etc However I think its more vital that the baby gets the first milk / colostrum
to set them up for a good start. I always said before having a baby that I would definitely breastfeed and formula didnt even enter my head, its just things didnt work out that way for me sadly.
