Breast-Feeding

Breast milk is considered ideal food source for newborn.
Breast milk is always the perfect temperature.
No special preparations or supplies are needed.

It takes about 3 weeks for milk supply in the breast to become fully established, during which time a large newborn may be unsatisfied.
It may be inconvenient or difficult for the mother who is employed outside of home.
Physical and psychological preparations for breast-feeding may be too demanding or inconvenient for some women.
Father cannot participate in feeding newborn.

Bottle-feeding

Feeding preparation replicates mother’s milk as much as possible.
Formula containers are marked, making it easy to measure the newborn’s intake.
Father can participate in feeding and bonding.

Some feeding formulas may contribute to colic.
Feeding formula does not contain immune antibodies from the mother.
Feeding formula may require extensive preparation (for example, supplies, measuring, mixing, and storage).
Formula requires refrigeration and must be warmed before feedings.
Method requires planning; parents must pack and carry feeding supplies when away from home.
Bottle-feeding costs more than breast feeding.
