Not at all. If you are happier then your baby will be too. You have every right to do what you want. Formula provides nutrition so don't beat yourself up about it. I know it is hard not to with this issues, but do what feels best. I loved bottle feeding and for me that is what worked. I tried breast feeding and it did not work--way beyond painful. I pumped with my first two kids for several weeks, but with #3 it was 100% formula, and she was my calmest baby because I took the stress (for me mind you, I can only speak for me) of breastfeeding and pumping out. Either way, you are the mom and you do what you feel is best. It is often different for everyone.

Not at all. You have to do what is best for both of you and breastfeeding isn't for every woman or baby.

BTW, yes we all know it's the best. Your husband has no clue and should not try to force you or make you feel guilty. GL in whatever you decide.
