Daycare and infant feeding

Hi! It's been pointed out to me that this board is debating infant feeding, while the Breastmilk vs. Formula board has been debating daycares. I thought I would bring that topic here for discussion.


The questions being asked are this:


Do either BF or FF babies require more overall care at daycare?


Do either BF or FF babies require more one-on-one time at daycare?


Should there be a different fee for daycare for either BF or FF babies?


And another question that's been asked in other threads but I thought

I'm very proud of you. I also didn't mention that I deliberately chose to formula feed because I was active duty military and would be going to the field shortly after returning to duty when convalescent leave was up.

I disagree that your statement is universally true. Extremists exist everywhere. Even at LLL and with an IBCLC cert. It has clearly been your good fortune never to have met one, but that doesn't give you the right to deny their existence nor dismiss their trespasses to those who have.

And it has clearly been your misfortune to have had a militant whatever attempt to show you the "error of your ways," but it's unfair of you to paint an entire board with that brush. My board, by the way. I'm a little protective of it.

What I was taught when mine were little was that the issue with microwaving formula is that even with shaking, some hot spots can still remain and therefore can still burn baby's mouth/throat.

Ok, if any daycare wants to charge you more or thinks you are a pain because you breastfeed, that's definately a daycare to avoid!
