So in turning on BBC News this morning there is yet again another debate with regards to Breast/Bottle. I don’t normally pay attention to these as I do feel it is a personal preference.
I tried to breast feed G we spent 4 days post birth trying to feed, and when they whisked my new-born baby to Scubu because his blood sugars had dropped that fast that he needed medical attention, it was then that I made my decision that he would be a bottle fed child.
It was a completely different ball game with R we both took to it really well, I produced milk this time which is always an advantage. I would never say I was the biggest of fans, however I perceived until he was 5.5months.
So today’s debate; Breast fed babies are less troublesome and less clingy?!?
Excuse me but it this household you wouldn’t be more wrong, G is relaxed, an extremely well-behaved child, does fantastic in school, never has a cold or problems with his chest, Gabriel doesn’t do cuddles or affection.
R on the other hand is the cheekiest of the cheek, screams even if he is left with his Dad, has suffered since birth with ear infections, has been in hospital twice because he’s stopped breathing, suffers terribly with toddler diarrhea, R needs to touch you, he needs to know you are near.
I love the pair of them equally, I adore the fact that I couldn’t get 2 more different children if I tried. They are individual and this I continue to encourage. I don’t think it has anything to do with how they were fed in the first place, and even if it was Oxford University you have it wrong in this household!
