Choice can be difficult in motherhood

It is difficult for mothers to choose between breastfeeding and formula feeding, but what is important is your health and your baby’s health. We recommend you breastfeed if you are completely healthy and don’t have any concerns related to your breast or health, as breastfeeding is natural and will provide your baby with proper antibodies and vitamins that are important for his growth and development.

However, if you think breastfeeding is giving you problems and back aches, you can switch to formula feeding after a few months. The minimum recommended age for breast feeding is 6 months.
