  • I tried to breastfeed, but it didn't work out for me, bottles work great for us. I know two familes who did formula from the start.

  • I tried to breastfeed my first son 5 years ago and I couldnt get him to latch...It was quite frustrating. I chose to bottle feed. I am happy with my decision. And my son was fine...

    I just delivered my second son 26 days ago and I was able to get him to latch great. We are breastfeeding and its going excellent! I am VERY happy to be able to breastfeed. Its a great experience and its saving us LOTS of money!!!

  • when i went into hospital to have daughter, nurses asked if i was planning on breast feeding
    i said i was ging to try
    they thought i was strange to say try
    but how does anyone know, you can not comapre it to ANYTHING else
    s i did try and it worked for me and our daughter (7 months, i did use breast pump too, her dad wanted to feed her also, and i gave me a "break" and he could feed her, but mostly breast fed, as months went on, used pump a bit more, can take along on the road, i whipped the boob out too and did not care- i did use discretion, but always someone who gives you a dirty look to breast feed in public even when you are using a blanket to cover-whatever
    it worked for me, but i did not KNOW it would until i tryed it
    if a mom says YES i am going to and has never before-good for her, but i left it open until i tryed it

    to each her own

  • Nope. I'm way too lazy and cheap to bottle-feed!
