Nope feeding formula isn't good if you want to succeed in Breastfeeding. Most hospitals encourage latching on now n you will get free consultation with lactation consultant while you r in hospital. Try to latch on all the time even though you think you have no milk. It's a demand n supply thing. When baby suckle more, the milk will eventually come. Determination is the key. Also equip yourself with the right info about bf n dont get affected by negative remarks.
