There's a debate on new research into BF'ing on This Morning today. Might be worth a watch x
Yeah I saw that, all these things are so annoying us poor mums duno what to do half the time for the best! I disagree with what was said about breast fed babies cry more than bottle fed, think it's different babies not how they are fed!
I didn't see the documentry, but check this out. it says that although they **MAY** cry more, it's a good thing, b/c they aren't stuffed to the brim!
this is the quote:
"Bottle-fed babies may appear more content, but research suggests that these infants may be over nourished and gain weight too quickly. ”

Really? Jacob has been exclusively breastfed since he was born and he only cries if he's unwell. I think it depends a lot on the individual baby too, not how they are fed

This made me laugh, Jack's been bottle fed since birth and is a skinny little mite. He sits just below the 25th percentile for his weight. He's getting weighed tomorrow and was only 15lb 6oz six weeks ago. I don't think feeding methods makes a difference to whether a child is content or not. Some babies cry, some babies don't x
Oz never used to cry for food really, well he was attached to me virtually all the time so that may be why lol
Breast milk is easier for babies to digest than formula, so formula may leave them feeling fuller for longer. But every baby is different so hard to say.
That made me laugh too, when emma was breast fed she cried lots and now she is on a bottle she is happy and content - clairebear - despite being 'full to the brim' of milk Emma is dead scrawny as well as jack, bless her - only 2nd centile.
I think all babies have their good and bad days, just like us, it doesn't matter how they are fed!
Totally agree!!! These studies drive me nuts... Arthur is the happiest most content baby ever. But is breastfed and is in 65 percentile.
MAY is a big word with regards to studies, means there is not enough solid evidence to say for definite.
It's like when you see the word FROM next to a price on an advert lol x
I agree cosmic! It's like the midwife said on This Morning, why publish this "research" if they haven't got sound answers to their questions. I was exclusively BF'ing Alice until I wasn't enough for her, now I'm combo feeding and either way she's a very happy and contented baby who has been gaining weight nicely. I'd like to know what babies they used for this study and who the researchers were!!
