Idk if this really counts but with my oldest 2 I breastfed but supplemented with formula while I was at work. At the time many work environments weren't as helpful regarding pumping at work and I really had a hard time pumping enough at home to last the 6 or 7 hours I worked. So I kinda wussed out and had my dh use formula if there wasn't enough breast milk to last the day. I'll admit too that with my oldest I almost gave up. If my dh had not worked with a woman who just finished breastfeeding her child, I may have given up. For me it was painful and not pleasant at first. But his co-worker told him to keep encouraging me and helping me so he did. A lot of women don't have that support from their SO and give up. My SIL gave up because her dh told her to.

I chose to formula feed because I am a very private person and could not see myself BFing in public( I know you can pump etc.) Also I had quite a hard time after giving birth(200+ stitches) and my SO would help me by getting up in the middle of the night with him for the first few weeks. I think it was really good though for us. It let father and son have a lot of bonding time they would not have had if I has breastfed. Now he is 6 months old and very healthy. I am still happy with my decision and if I have more children in the future they will also be formula fed.
