According to recent research ... mothers who bottle-feed rather than breastfeed are putting themselves at greater risk of postnatal depression ... an absence of breastfeeding has been connected with the death of a child, and ... the decision to bottle-feed mimics that loss ... those who bottle-fed their babies scored much higher on a postnatal depression scale than those who breastfed.
