Feeding Your Baby Breast Milk or Formula? Your Choice.

Becoming a mom is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. But, it is just the first of many, many big decisions as a parent. What kind of diapers will they wear? What time will they go to bed? Swaddle or no swaddle? Co-sleep or straight to crib? It can really be overwhelming. But the biggest question, or at least the first one is breast milk or formula?

I received compensation and samples for this post. All opinions and ideas are my own. 


When did this turn into such a heated topic? I am not here to debate either side. I firmly believe that as mothers we do the everything we can to provide what is best for ourselves and our families. For some that looks like exclusively breastfed babies, for others it is formula, and still others do a combination of the two. Whatever you have decided to do for your baby, give yourself a high five. Great choice mama! No matter what you have decided, the next decision will be what kind of bottle you want to use. Even if you are exclusively breastfeeding your babe, chances are you are going to need to pump and give them a bottle at some point.


There a so many choices out there, but my little girl is loving the Philips Avent Classic+ Bottle. It has so many great features that make feedings run smoothly. She has so many things she loves about it. She just told me yesterday that their anti-colic system has been integrated all the way into the nipple. It contains a unique valve that opens and let air into the bottle instead of her tummy. It reduces fussiness, especially at bedtime, and it allows her to control the flow reducing overeating, gas and burping. Plus, it is easy to clean and easy to hold making it a win from my end as well.

I breastfeed my baby, but knowing that she can still have a happy eating experience when I am away brings me so much peace of mind. The Philips Avent Classic+ Bottle has been great for our family. It is the bottle she eats best from, and babies know best! We took a Polaroid Cube Camera and strapped it to the top of her favorite bottle to really capture just how easy eating is with Philips Avent. In fact all of the photos from this post were captured with this handy little camera. Turns out when you strap a camera to my baby’s bottle she really wants to play with it! Check it out:

Kinda fun to see what it all looks like from your baby’s point of view! That is one happy and content babe, well if she could just get her hands on that camera!  Want to try one of these amazing bottles for yourself? Philips Avent is offering a free bottle to the first 25 people to comment on this post requesting one! How cool is that!?

Whatever makes mama and baby happy is good for me! I did a mix of both, but breastfeeding didn't come easy.

Each Mom needs to decide for herself what works best for her and baby. I have never used the Philips Avent bottles but look like good ones.
