Hi Toto

It would depend on your circumstances. If you could higenically prepare formula milk and keep all the bottles and teats sterilised, then bottle feeding would be best.

If not, exclusive breastfeeding is recommended, with no bottle feeding in between.

All the best.

NO! Apparantly if the Mother is HIV+, the baby can be born negative but gets infected through the breastmilk.
