  • Since all 7 of my natural born children were completely breastfed for a minimum of 15 months or more I say breast feed your baby. This is a personal choice of mine and I do encourage other mothers to do the same. But it is of course a choice you make for yourself and your baby. Best of luck to you.

  • i started out breastfeeding, but had to go to formula - which is just fine if that's what a mom chooses to do

  • I so wanted to breastfeed but my son just would not latch on. I compromised and pumped exclusively for the first 3 months, then 1/2 formula for the next 2 months, then just formula.

  • With my 1st I started out breastfeeding, but that did not go well and pumping did not help the situation so he ended up being formula fed. My #2 and 3 were formula fed. If you want to breastfeed this next one then I say go for it-- and good luck!

  • Breast feed. My first self-weened at just over a year, but my second the doctor didn't want him having breast milk at first because he has jaundice (Still really mad about that), and he never really wanted to after that, so he only did 3 months on the breast and then formula after that.
