Decades and centuries ago, the only common way to feed an infant was through breastfeeding. However, in modern times a number of baby formulas and baby foods have hit the supermarket shelves. Inexpensive plastic bottles make it easy to administer these foods to babies. But we shouldn’t let the artificial world of manufactured products supplant the practice of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding provides infants with the most appropriate and adequately nutritious substance available for them, their mothers’ milk. Furthermore, breastfeeding creates a positive bond between mother and child. This bond will be carried out throughout the child’s life.
