The Breast is Big Savings January 8, 2008

Why breastfeed?  Your reasons probably include health, bonding, and convenience, and these may well be the most important ones.  But, did you know that you’re saving your family a bundle by breastfeeding your infant for the first year?  That’s right, according to the latest edition of Pregnancy & Newborn magazine, formula costs approximately $120 per month for the first few months of baby’s life.  “After starting solids, the cost can reduce to half of that, about $60 – but you’re still looking at close to $1000 the first year in formula alone, and that’s not counting the cost of the bottles themselves” (page 66). 

Wow!  Remember that next time you find yourself restlessly making a mental to-do list while you sit feeding baby.  Oh, and I guess that means you can indulge in that nursing bra without feeling a bit of guilt 🙂
