In this article, the author discusses the uncertainties of breastmilk feeding compared to breastfeeding. She states that breastmilk feeding affects the relationship between the mother and the baby, and the mother has the additional task of maintaining the cleanliness of the pump and feeding bottle. She also mentions that feeding the babies with artificial baby milks is not a substitute for breastfeeding and it can have a long-term health deficit for the baby.
