Bottle Feeding Or Nursing the Natural Way.
August 20, 2008 12:19pm CST
I know the best way to feed a baby is nursing them the natural way, I can't remember which way I was fed, but I am sure it was the natural way (if you know what I mean.) Do you know whether you were bottle fed or the natural way. And which one would you prefer for your children? My children was fed from a bottle now I wonder did I do the best thing, the have never felt the tenderness of a mothers nursing, I had to bring them up on a bottle because I had to work.

My baby boy was put in intensive baby care for the first three weeks of his life. When I came to see him he wouldn't latch on, however I expressed milk for him at home. The hospital lent me an electric expressing machine to use. It made me sore and it pinched me quite tightly. I had to let my baby son have bottle feeding because of the situation. My natural milk supply dried up, once ny bay son came home I needed to care for him, not express my milk. My sister has fed each of her children in the natural way. I regret not having done this with my two children. I was bottle fed when I was a baby, my mum told me.

I do not know about me but my brother just used bottle and he is strong as a bull! The day I have a kid if I have one I will feed him with bottle no doubt about it and I hope nobody try to convince me otherwise like I heard that nurses do in hospitals! LOL

Hi Chevee, I was brought up on natural way, but I never had any children so I wouldn't know about these things, my sister brought up her twins babies on the bottle because she couln't natural them as she went dry but it did not make a difference with bonding, they bonded very well with my sister, they are now in their 30s boy and girl twins.
