Breast Feeding

What are some pros and cons on breastfeeding?  I really want to breast feed.

1. It's a heck of a lot cheaper.
2. Breastfed babies typically have stronger immune systems.
3. Bonding between baby and mom.
4. You use fewer diapers.

Babies don't have an immune system for the first six months, so they get protection from mum's milk. This is my first baby so I dunno any of the other benefits, but that one is my reason for doing it once baby's born. :) Good luck!

Not much of a con....for some it can just be annoying...pumping and feeding. Unless hubby wamts to drink some...he wont be able to play lol.some have had a hard time feeding with production and infection. some have to be careful of wjat they eat and drink because baby can be sensitive to it. But it is all just inconvenience, it is great for baby. Great bonding
