Best Answer

Breast milk is best for both your baby and you as it contains a substance called cholostrum which strengthens your babys immune system and so reduces the risk of your baby catching infections and cholostrum isn't found in formula milk also breast feeding is very good for you as when your baby suckles on your breast your stomach muscles and your uterus muscles constrict and you can actually feel then tighten and go back to their normal size which you want to happen also breast milk is totally free and easy as theres no bottles to sterilise so all in all breast milk is the best option hands down .
