Breastfed Vs Formula Fed Discussion

Breastfed vs Formula fed
We have talked about the benefits of breastfeeding. There used to be the slogan “Breastfeeding is best”, which has been used less frequently lately, as “Breastfeeding is Normal” is encouraged now to help empower moms to breastfeed rather than stigmatize those who, for whatever reason, are unable to do so. I mentioned in my lecture that I have 2 daughters. One was breastfed for nearly 2 years while the other refused to nurse and would scream as if she were being fed glass. I have experience with both. Though I have my own opinions about which is easier in different situations, what do you think?
Look at the information in the CDC website and the American Academy of Pediatrics website.

CDC – Breastfeeding Why it Matters (Links to an external site.)
CDC – Public opinion about Breastfeeding (Links to an external site.)

I also like this non-science based article about the myths of breastfeeding vs. formula feeding. (Links to an external site.) There is another one he leaves off that we talked about on our lecture – do you know what it is?
What benefits do you see? To both the mom and the baby? Why might some moms choose to use formula rather than breast milk? Overall, breastfeeding is wonderful for both mom and baby, but sometimes it’s not meant to be. What are some ways you can support moms – in either situation? Learn how to support moms as nurses HERE (Links to an external site.)
The rates of breastfeeding vary across the nation (See the CDC facts page (Links to an external site.) ). Why do you think that is? Why do you suppose the rates of attempting breastfeeding are almost 83% at birth, but exclusive breastfeeding drops to 25% at 6 months of age? Search through these sites, and see if you can find others.
This is a class discussion. I want you to provide a good discussion using th information we have learned in our ppt and lecture as well as what you have seen in the articles and websites posted. As usual, full points are awrded when you demonstrate you understand the material. And you need to reply to one other student’s post. Try to encourage discussion. Pose a question or add thoughts to the original post.
