How beneficial is your milk if you are allergic to literally everything besides air? I am talking wheat, dairy, peanuts and turkey just for food! Plus so completely malnurished, I have only gained 13 lbs and am 38 wks pregnant! I had to gain 20 lbs just to get pregnant which required smoking pot day in and day out (yes, perscription but stopped when I got pregnant). I have asthma and am sick at least 4 times a year (severely sick). No, I do not have any "illness", just unhealthy as F@#K. Always have been! Is my child going to even benefit from bfing or am I going to ruin her???

You are the poster child for why a child should be breastfed! I am sure you do not want your child to have the hardships you did so try and placate that by breastfeeding. Breastmilk can provide immunities and 'helpers' to everything you have listed. If you decide on formula you are basically giving your child no chance to achieve to higher heights. You are basically saying oh well it will happen so what?! The so what is the fact that breastfeeding may stop the allergies, may help your child from suffering from moderate to severe stomach problems, immediate and lifelong. Basically if you want better for your child the best bet is to breastfeed.
