It's hit it's highest mark in twenty years...the number of moms who are choosing to breastfeed their babies.

The moms we spoke with on Thursday all agree on one thing...breastfeeding is the way to go. Their reasons for doing it, however, vary. Jennifer Askins says she was able to create a special bond with her kids through breast feeding.

Amber Hall likes the health and nutritional benefits of breastmilk. Brittainy Giese says formula is just so expensive, so she breastfed for financial reasons.

Doctor Meganne Walsh is an Amarillo pediatrician. She has an important message for those moms who who choose store bought formula. She says you should not feel guilty. You are not doing your baby any harm by not breastfeeding.
