There are multiple organizations all over the world, especially in the U.S., that encourage breastfeeding over formula feeding. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), for instance, says that exclusive breastfeeding should be done for at least the first six months, and is encouraged till the twelfth month after birth. It can continue for longer if both baby and mother are willing. Formula should be given on the rare occasions that the mother can’t, for any reason, breastfeed the baby, or chooses not to. Realistically, the choice is always left to the mother.
