  • With my DD I planned on solely breast feeding, because I felt that it was a healthy choice for us. But once she was born my body wasn't supplying enough milk and I did both. And honestly it actually worked out awesome because some nights I was just too exhausted to get up, so daddy got to get up and feed her bottles. :-)

  • I plan to exclusivly breastfeed. I breastfed my DD exclusivly for a year and will do the same for this baby. I do it because of the health benefits, its cheaper, the bonding ect. There are alot of reasons to breastfeed, and there are reason's not to...do what is best for YOU!!! You will get alot of answers on here from people telling you what to do or being rude so just ignore them

  • I'm going to try and breastfeed with this one. With my daughter I tried for 4 days and my nipples were bleeding and I didn't have enough milk...I even tried a breat pump and after an hour I had only got ouut 2 ounces so I admitted defeat and had my mom make her a bottle bc I was afraid she was starving. I'm going to try this time and hopefully will be able too.

  • I bottle fed because I wasn't comfortable breast feeding. I didn't see how putting myself under additional stress would be healthy for me or him so it worked for us. He turned out to be a happy, healthy little boy!
