Should I breast or bottle feed my baby?

August 07, 2015
This is a common question asked during pregnancy but one that it is easy to answer. I often advise to breast feed. There are very few contraindications to breastfeeding such as women that have HIV, herpetic breast lesions, active tuberculosis, or active drug abuse. Here’s why breastfeeding is better:

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Though absolutely no fault of the doctor, I do wish the appointments didn't feel so rushed. [...] If the pace were a little more leisurely, I might have the chance to think of questions that I forget to ask in the ten minute appointment. I feel like I have to bring an agenda to get everything I need addressed. I want to emphasize that this has absolutely NOTHING to do with the doctor's demeanor. She does not try to rush me. It is more about the narrow time frame.
