is breast best?

Hi, I am a mom of 2 lovely boys, one 4 year old and a 1 and half year old, i had problems breast feeding firs one, no support, new mom etc, felt bad about it but moved on, i successfully breast fed 2nd one for 6 months before going back to work, now i feel as if i have been unfair to first one with all this info about bf''ing reducing risk of many chroning diseases, increasing iq etc what are the facts and what is fiction? i have read many studies but i am so confused

Many mother's are unable to breast feed their babies for one or other reason.While there is no doubt that breast is best, the modern infant formulas have many benefits. Please do not dwell on the past as long,as your 4 year old is healthy and happy that is what counts and there is no way of going back anyway
