Breast feeding is best. You really can't compare the two, there are so many nutrients in breast milk.  Formula companies can't even come close to creating anything that can compare.

Breast is best but as I would like some time to do my own thing, have a bath and sleep go out to the shop etc while my boyfriend looks after The baby as he works alot I'm going to buy a pump so he can bottle feed it while I do my own thing although this won't be very often at all I do hope the baby can get use to the bottle as I know they use different muscles between the two.

Breastfeeding is best because of the antibodies that baby gets from you, however formula is fine too. All the vitamins and things baby needs are in formula. I will be breastfeeding and pumping but I will also be supplementing with formula. I am not a dairy cow and refuse to be stuck at home and hooked up to a pump all day.
