s/o what does exclusively bf mean to you?

One more thread from me then I'll shut up The clw thread got me thinking----


So do you think ebf include bm in a bottle? I always wondered about this. My first 2 neer had bottles (ds1 refused dd I tried once and it didn't happen and I am not fond of bottles anyhow so we never pushed it) ds2- he had a nicu stint and had a few bottles then of bm ---when I got him home I went no bottles ---and then around 5 m I started working a shift a week sometimes less rarely more and he has bottles then of bm.

I would prefer no bottles but it is what it is. I plan to transition him to a cup but he doesn't take solids yet (he's 7 months) so I think he will still need occasional bottles for bit yet.

So is he ebf?

I say ebf is JUST breastmilk, whether it be in a bottle or straight from the breast. My youngest is 3 1/2mo, no bottles, hope to skip them and go straight to a cup when he needs it.

My honest reaction- Who cares? Why does it matter if you or your baby fit into some narrow catergory as defined by people you don't even know?


To answer the Q, yes, I think so. Breastmilk is breastmilk.

Congrats on him rolling over!!!!!

JUST breastmilk, whether it's from the breast, bottle, or cup.

I agree with everyone else!! I did see on the other thread someone saying if they got it in a bottle they weren't exclusively breastfed, but I disagree....breastmilk is breastmilk!!

I agree with the PPs - it means JUST breastmilk, no matter how it's given to baby

breast milk is breast milk - if it weren't... how unfair to momma's who ~have~ to return to work to say their LO isn't ebf because she has no choice but to return. (not saying OP is saying that at all!)
