From research I've done breastmilk is usually easier for your baby to digest since it's completely natural and for humans. This typically means happier baby because less constipation, gas and general tummy problems. You will also pass antibodies through your breastmilk which baby's saliva will cue which ones to produce during feedings. It's actually kind of amazing. I will say that most women do talk about becoming engorged (breasts are so full it's hard for baby to latch) so you'll want a pump even if you plan on always feeding straight from your breast. A simple one can be bought for less that $20 and I've heard insurances should pay for better ones.

I was unable to breast feed. Although research shows its the best. So give it a go if it feels right for you. My 2 children was formula feed babies and are healthy and have good immune system only ever been on antibiotics once in their lifetime and they are now age 6 and 8. Very rarely get a cold or flu in fact I can't remember the last time. What I am saying if breast feeding works for you great, if it doesn't don't be to hard on your self. I seen a lot of my friends put huge pressure on themselves to breast feed. Go into it with an open mind and if it works out for you and baby all the better.

The hospital should provide a hand pump due to Obama care there are pros and cons to both the hospital should have a lactation advisor to help you get started and the hospital should have info on support groups in your area
