Whether to breastfeed or bottle-feed is an important choice to think about before you have your baby. Ask your doctor about the benefits of breastfeeding for both you and your baby and who can help you learn how to breastfeed. You can leave the Pregnancy section to visit our Breastfeeding section, which will give you the information you need to make an informed choice. Don't forget to come back to the Pregnancy section for more great information on getting ready for parenthood.
