From the Publisher
There are many reasons women bottlefeed their child. Some are health-related. Some are driven by other needs. Yet, the decision not to breastfeed is very difficult to make. Not only do mothers have to deal with their own emotions, but society has stigmatized those who bottlefeed. Now, in this practical book you will find the answers that will help you make the best choice for you and your child.
Written by a mother of two, When Breastfeeding Is Not an Option will help you make an informed, personal decision. It will give you information in a cool and calm manner, far from the noise of superstition, political correctness, and unscientific mythology. Inside, you'll find insights from a number of experts and personal stories from mothers who have been there—information that you won't find anywhere else, including:
• Breast or Bottle: Which Is Best for You?
A Quiz for Expectant Mothers

• Tips about the proper storage, transportation, and heating and cooling of formula
• The ups and downs of juggling employment and infant feeding
