Absolutly NO bashing in this question, please! I hear it on Cafemom all the time where women say 'Well I could have breast fed, but I WANTED to Formula feed'. And I am intrested in a non drama way why moms have made the choice to FF. Honest answers, please.
Remember this is for moms who made the choice to FF only, don't bash mothers for their answers!

Combination from almost birth. I mixed formula with breast milk and he used a bottle and the breast. I didn't produce a lot of milk and didn't ask for help from a lactation specialist. My ex was abusive and I was very nervous and depressed, which probably didn't help with the milk production. My baby gave up the breast at 4.5 months. He never thought of himself as a baby and was in daycare watching no one else use a bottle from the age of 2.5 months (ex wouldn't work and wouldn't watch the baby). I also found that the last time I used my Not-A-Medula breast pump and I used a different outlet, I had full power. Maybe it was the electrical problems in the apartment or just meant to be.
