As you watch this video, keep in mind that breast milk and formula give babies the nutrients and comfort that they need to grow healthy and strong. Feeding time can be a quiet time for bonding: singing songs, counting fingers and toes, or telling baby about everything she did that day. And there are many people who can help and offer support and advice about breastfeeding, like lactation consultants and pediatricians. You can also ask about when and how you might introduce a bottle while you are breastfeeding.
