Question


Will my 6-week-old become sick if I switch from breast milk to formula?

Answer


You have given your baby a great start by breastfeeding for the first six weeks. Compared with formula-fed babies, breastfed babies have a reduced risk of ear infections, respiratory illness, and infectious diarrhea. You may want to reconsider the switch to formula, especially if your baby will be attending a large child care facility soon with exposure to many infections. Even breastfeeding for half of the feeds will give your baby some of the immune benefits.
