Article Body:
Bottle feeding your baby is a common decision for most moms. It is a
decision that may be pondered over for long periods of time as you want
to make the right choice as to why you want to bottle feed rather than
breastfeed. If you decide to bottle feed, your next dilemma will be what
kind of formula is best for your baby.

The most common baby formula to use is the ready-made type. It is the
most convenient as you can feed your baby its contents as soon as you
open it. The downside is that you are paying for the convenience since
ready-made formula is the most expensive type to buy. You can save money
by using powdered formula. The great thing about powdered formula is
that it is the easiest to store in its dry state as it doesn't require
refrigeration. Once you have mixed it with water, it will need to be
refrigerated.

Your next decision is whether to choose formula made from cow's milk or
soy. Formula from cow's milk is the most popular choice. However, if
your baby is lactose intolerant this is not the right option. In the
case of lactose intolerance, you can try soy based formula. Soy in
general has received bad publicity and is still controversial when it
comes to long term consumption. Goat's milk is also another option for
lactose intolerant babies. It contains lower levels of lactose and may
be a good option if you are concerned about soy's effects. If goat's
milk or soy based formulas still don't appeal to you, there are also
cow's milk formulas that are lactose free.

Newer formulas now have DHA and ARA added to them. Both are found in
breast milk and formulas containing them can be a plus for mother's who
are concerned about baby formula benefits. Always consult with your
pediatrician if you are unsure about which baby formula to give your
baby. You can find out how each type may benefit or which ingredients
may not be as important.

Another major concern about bottle feeding is how to handle it while
traveling out of town. You will have to take into consideration whether
your destination will have a refrigerator, a way to plug in necessities
like a bottle sterilizer, as well as a way to have boiled water if you
use powdered formula. These types of concerns will become second nature
once you get used to the routine of bottle feeding.

One thing to also remember is that baby formula (particularly the ready-
made type) can be rather expensive. Even if you choose to use powdered
formula, traveling may require the need for keeping ready-made formula
handy for times when you don't have access to boil water. You will need
to keep a good supply of baby formula on hand at all times and this can
put a huge dent into your budget. There are ways to save on formula by
shopping for it in bulk or by using coupons for specific brands like
Enfamil or Carnation.
