MYTH-It is easier to bottle feed than to breastfeed

Breastfeeding is made difficult because women often do not receive the help they should to get started properly. A poor start can indeed make breastfeeding difficult. But a poor start can also be overcome. Breastfeeding is often more difficult at first, due to a poor start, but usually becomes easier later.

Bottle feeding takes much more preparation time. Anytime you leave the house you must consider how many bottles, how much formula to bring and if you will have access to water and a way to warm the bottles. When you breastfeed, all you need is yourself.
