Is formula just as good for my baby as breast milk?
Breast milk is a living food that provide immunities against disease (e.g. if you got the flu shot - so did your nursing baby, without the shot!), provides essential substances that a human baby needs (not a calf) and cannot be replicated in a laboratory, and changes as the baby grows depending on her / his needs.

But breastfeeding is much more than just a way to feed your baby since it provides a stronger bond between you and your baby, burns calories to get your shape back, releases hormones that relax you and much more.
