Issues to consider

If you're undecided about whether to breast-feed or bottle-feed, consider these questions:

• Does your or your baby's health care provider suggest one or the other? If you or your baby has health problems, discuss how that may affect your decision about how to feed your baby.

• Do you have a solid understanding of both methods? Learn as much as you can about feeding your baby. Seek out a perinatal educator, a lactation consultant or other health care provider.

• Do you plan to return to work? If so, how does that affect your decision? What accommodations are available or can be made for you to express milk at work, if that's your plan?

• How does your partner feel about the decision?

• How have other mothers you trust and respect made their decisions? If they had it to do over again, would they make the same choices?
