I breastfeed my 15 month old, he's got lots of teeth and I have no issues.

If baby if nursing correctly you don't feel teeth. I have nursed two kids now into full mouths of teeth. Teething is something you work with if there is an issue & it resolves. I will do a lot for my kids...being a teether isn't one of them & I don't think any mom is willing to do that....there are ways to address if you ever do get bit & make sure it stops.

Smacking them over the head is fully acceptable right? Lol. I think the few times he accidentally bit me, he was more upset about it than me.

The biggest issue we had with teeth was nursing to sleep & that jerk people sometimes when when falling asleep, a few times I got chomped when baby started to doze. :/ We just refrained from nursing until fully asleep for a while & I'd nurse him until *almost* asleep.

As much as your looking into the benefits of breastfeeding, you should also be thinking about the potential risks of formula feeding.
Formula can be recalled because of health risks. Things like too much rodent feces in the formula (because as a mass produced product there are regulations about how much rodent feces is allowed. I can assure you my breastmllk has none) It happens all the time. Also it provides ZERO immunities to babies and is just chemically engineered cow's milk.

Don't worry about it - you have lots of time.



Any food product has the potential for recall. Ready to feed formulas (if using formula) are safer than powdered formula, but also MUCH more pricey & hard to travel with if not in individual serving sizes (which are UBER expensive). regular formula in powder form does say on the side of each can "not a sterile food product", because there is no way to make a powder like that sterile AND not end up cooking it & loosing much of it's nutritional value.



No joke, nursing can be downright difficult early on. It can. It doesn't stay that way though & that is what you have to keep telling yourself when you are having a rough time. And not everyone does find it difficult. The more you prepare yourself via classes, reading, watching videos online on what a good latch looks like & all that jazz. Googling Dr Jack Newman video is helpful - he has TON of youtube videos.



The most important thing to being able to establish breastfeeding is NOT supplementing early on. Any time you supplement you actually cause a decrease in supply. The more you do it, the more it decreases & then women say they "can't breastfeed" due to low supply, not realizing that low supply was actually created through this cycle of increasing supplements. That is why you need to read, so you understand that a baby in a growth spurts always acts starving & if you don't know that, mom can easily assume she is not making enough milk, feel guilty like she is depriving the baby & then supplement, not realizing this is a temporary thing & part of the NORMAL process of increasing milk supply. The way you ensure that baby is NOT starving is watching diaper output. It really is that easy. A baby cannot poop & pee out what has not gone in, right? So if baby has enough diapers...baby has enough food.
