I'm due in a few months, and I have read that some plastic bottles can allow estrogen-like compounds to leach into the milk. I am interested in using glass bottles and will be breastfeeding but have read that glass bottles are not recommended for breast milk. Why would this be?

My 4-week-old daughter seems to be gaining weight appropriately on breast milk. However, she feeds only every three to four hours, and then often only on one breast. I seem to have what I've heard called an "overactive milk supply" as the milk lets down very fast and there's too much of it. Why doesn't my body adjust to the schedule my daughter is setting up? And also, should I wake her up more often to feed? She just won't take the breast when I try that.

Our newly home, 12-week-preemie is now 12 weeks old, or age 0 for practical purposes. In the last month at the hospital she got used to a three-hour feeding schedule. Now after a couple of weeks at home, as her weight approaches 5 1/2 pounds, she wants to feed more often, every one and a half to two hours, but is not interested in feeding more than 2 ounces at each feeding. Do you have any suggestions for encouraging her to eat more at each feeding but less frequently? She is getting pumped breastmilk and direct breastmilk and is now starting formula.

I am adopting a newborn who is expected in July. I want to breastfeed my baby. I have heard that I can take hormones and pump my breasts to produce. Would this milk be as beneficial to baby as the biological mother's milk as far as nutrition is concerned?
