Read Transcript

Question, if a baby is not breast fed will he or she develop normally? That's a very good question, yes. A recent study looked at babies who are either breast fed or given milk or soy formula, their brain development was tracked over a year and they all developed normally, researchers concluded if a mom can't breast feed she may not feel guilty because the baby will do just fine.

Now the doctor still recommends breast feeding over bottle feeding. Absolutely, it's cheap, it's healthy and you get some really good things that you don't get in formula and a body for that kind of thing but still if you cant, you can't.
