What are the cons of exclusively pumping breast milk and feeding baby using bottle versus breast feeding?
Efficency: It's more efficient to breast feed than to pump & then bottle feed. You also avoid any risk of less than perfectly sterile bottles causing the milk to carry an infection.

Just in case breast feeding baby emergency if my 3 month old in an emergency can not nurse from mother what kind of milk would I have to buy that would not hurt her.
Any : Any infant under one year of age if not breastfeeding or drinking expressed breastmilk in a bottle should be supplemented with infant formula made for ages 0-12months. There are a variety of brands available for you to choose from. As long as it states its for infants 0-12months of age it will suffice. You can start with any milk based formula, and if baby has trouble tolerating it (diarrhea, increasing gas or fussiness) a soy based infant formula can be tried. In this case i would recommend to seek the advice of your child's pediatrician or family doctor. Remember breast milk is recommended for infants under 1, however that is not always possible, and formula is a great second choice. Keep up the good work mom! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
