I had the good fortune of being able to attend the Baby Friendly Initiative Conference 2015 in May. The Baby Friendly Initiative (BFI) was launched by the World Health Organization, WHO, in 1991.

One Keynote speaker I had the great privilege to listen to was Diane Wiessinger. She is an IBCLC, LLL leader, co-author of LLL The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding 8th edition and most recently co-author of Sweet Sleep.

The very first thing she did was ask us a question:

“If you had to choose between 2 ways of feeding your baby which would you choose? There are no right or wrong answers.

1. Exclusively breastfeed your baby but only formula comes out of your breasts.
2. Exclusively bottle feed your baby with breast milk in the bottle.”

Tell me, which would you choose?
