When I finally have a child, I would like to breastfeed because I hear that it creates an intimate bond between mum and baby. I myself was bottle fed as my mum had difficulties breastfeeding, which she discovered with my oldest sister. I have also heard, however, that while breastfeeding can be a beautiful experience to share with you newborn, there are also higher risks for allergies. Is there some truth to this, or is it simply a myth?
Thanks in advance,
Natalie
