Breast Or Bottle?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am going to be an Aunt again in a couple of months.  This baby will either be my ninth nephew or my sixth niece.  My sister opted not to find out the sex of the baby, and since she already has a son and a daughter, she is prepared for either one.  She breast fed both of her other children, and I am sure she will breast feed this one as well.

I tried to breast feed all three of my kids, but it never worked out.  I ended up pumping for the first three months of each kids life, but then my milk dried up and I gave them formula.   I always chose the store brand formula because I knew it was just as good as the name brands.  In fact, the store brand formulas must meet the same FDA nutrition guidelines as the brand names.  There is no reason to buy the more expensive formulas, because there is no difference between them and the sometimes up to 50% cheaper store brands.  That can be a savings of up to $600 a year.  I am sure new parents can think of many other things that they could spend that money on.

If I ever have another child, I will not even be able to attempt breast feeding because of my breast reduction.  I will happily be buying store brand formula once again.  Let's all just hope that I don't find myself in that position, though.  I am too old to be starting over with a baby.  Although, this time around I would have two teenagers who could help out.
