Moms say its the bond between mother and child.
I didn't breastfeed and didn't really have the option to at the time. While I was pregnant I decided I wasn't comfortable with it. Then when my DS was born I wasn't given the option. He was in the Nicu over a week and no one bother to even ask. I do regret not even being able to try. I know I should of said something.
I still have a great bond with DS even with not breastfeeding... I don't get it.. What is with the bonding and breastfeeding thing?

As a breastfeeding mother I don't get it either. If I hadn't been able to breastfeed it wouldn't have made me feel any less for my child and him for me. No one thing could possibly interfere with the bond we have. Breastfeeding is one of 100 things that bonded us. I feel sad for moms who couldn't breastfeed because of all the money they had to spend on formula. But I don't think I'm more bonded with my child than all the moms I know who bottle fed.
