Q:

What benefit does formula milk provide. Mother's milk is best then should we give formula to babies. I understand when needed it's important to give but other wise.



Scheduling feedings may be easier. Formula isn't digested as quickly as breast milk, so formula-fed babies don't need to eat as often, especially in the first few months. You don't have to worry about what you eat. Moms who breastfeed may have to avoid certain foods that their baby can't tolerate
