Breast or bottle? Mothers have long wrestled with the decision of how to feed a baby. While those who opt for breast have long felt they've had to fight to be accepted to do so in public, those who can't breast-feed or simply choose not to, say they feel judged.

A survey by Channel Mum shows 69 percent of bottle feeding mums have been judged negatively and 41 percent feel they've failed as a mum and failed their child because they don't breast feed.

Rick's special thank you to bone marrow donor

It was an absolutely wonderful day

– Ian Brown

Rick Haines has honoured a promise he gave 24 years ago to his bone marrow donor by inviting him to his daughter's wedding in Pennsylvania.

Ian Brown joined the Anthony Nolan register when his son was being treated for testicular cancer when he was nine months old. In 1991 he got a call saying he was a match for a patient in the US.

This was Rick, who at the time was terminally ill with aplastic anaemia and only had a few weeks to live. All he wanted was the chance to see his little girl walk down the aisle and Ian's bone marrow donation made that happen when it was flown to the USA on Concorde.
