Breastfeeding will always be the best food for your baby, but there are many reasons you may wish to stop, such as:
Feeding problems (nipple cleavage, breast inflammation, production or appetite problems).
Little support or help with milk production deteriorating.
Shame at feeding in public and at home
If you really do not like breastfeeding
The loss of your baby
The more knowledge you have about bottle feeding, the fewer the risks are by switching to bottle feeding.
If you have doubts about breastfeeding or not, start breastfeeding just after your baby's birth. After a couple of weeks of giving it a try, you have a better idea of what breastfeeding is. If you do not like it, you can still switch to artificial food. After all, it's easier to switch from breast to powder milk than vice versa.
If you move from breastfeeding, then do it gradually. Just replace one feed per week with a bottle. This prevents severe stiffness, clogged milk canals and breast infection. And by slowing down slowly, you will make sure your baby's intestines gradually adapt to the new diet.
