  • Some women aren't comfortable enough with their own bodies to give it a try.

  • I just got done breastfeeding my daughter 1 month ago and she will be 2 tom. But I do know that some moms want to and they just cant and lots do try they just arent able. I have also seen my fair share of women that just dont want to be held down by it.

  • I agree with post one ,I breastfeed all four of my kids, I had support from my mom plus I wanted to save money not having to buy formula LOL

  • Just not for me thats all. I formula fed my son and hes right where he needs to be in size and everything never had any problems. With this one I might give it a try but not too sure.

  • I don't understand not at least trying either. I understand some can't, but to decide not to before even giving birth is odd to me.

  • i wanted to give it a try, but with my living situation ( my boyfriend and i each live with our parents) i dont know how id accomplish it since he gets her on the weekends. also i ahd to go back to work and when my best friend went back to work, she had to spend her entire half hour break in the bathroom pumping. she couldnt really eat or anything. i didnt want that. if the situtation were different, and i was able to be a stay at home mom or at least be able to stay home for the first 6 months then i def. would give it a try. i kinda regret not doing it.

  • Because that was my decision. And to the first reply, it has nothing to do with being comfortable enough with your body. It is each woman's decision, and some of us choose not to.
