  • Yes, I did until she self weaned at 11.5 months. If I couldn't BF I would have been more than happy to FF, whatever it takes for a happy healty child.
    Would I like to see more moms attempt to BF, SURE. But do I look down on those who don't, NO

  • I did for 5 months on both of my children. I wish I could have done it longer but I just wasn't producing enough milk. I recently heard about a mothers milk tea that is suppose to help with that. I wish I had know about it then! I don't think there is anything wrong with formula feeding as long as your baby is happy and health you have to do whats right for you!

  • I breastfed my oldest til he was 11 months and weaned himself. I'm breastfeeding my 5 day old right now and plan on doing so til he's a year (if he will). I really love BFing. It's such a close bond with your baby that you cant get bottle feeding. Yeah, it hurts at first (like hell right now actually!) but it's so worth it! And it's free! And it's the way nature intended us to feed our babies, so it's only natural that it's good for them!

  • I breastfed and formula bottle nursed. I'm happy with my decisions. Wouldn't change a thing. :)
