Despite medical and social recommendations, the decision between breastfeeding or formula feeding your baby is up to you.
In the 1980s, with the liberation of women, the trend was to choose formula feeding the children. Conversely, now the most recommended option by paediatricians and midwives is to breastfeed. There are many pro breastfeeding associations which help as support group for first-time moms in order to teach them how to breastfeed.
Nevertheless, and despite social pressure, there are women who decide to formula feed their child. For some women, this is a problematic situation because they can even feel rejected and judged.
