Just wondering since I would like to when my baby is born. I formula fed my son because I really had no support or anyone close to me with any knowledge of breastfeeding and frankly my Mom persuaded me not to since she didn't. With my Son, I did go to a breastfeeding class before he was born for the basics but I really needed someone with me to help in the beginning and didn't. So where did you get help from?
Hospitals have lactation consultants that would be able to help you in the hospital and after.
http://www.llli.org/ La Leche League has local meetings and support as well.
I think if you searched you would find some support on CM as well.

When my son was first born I was like huh uh, not going to breast feed. I had planned to my entire pregnancy but then once he was here I was very uncomfortable with the idea. I felt like a freaking pervert. My husband said the most reasonable thing that changed everything. He said "if you don't breast feed, your milk will go away and you won't have another chance to. If you at least try, then you'll know for sure whether it freaks you out or feels uncomfortable". For whatever reason, it worked. I tried, didn't feel like a pervert, and walllahhhh all 3 of my kids have been breast fed. He would rub the baby's face to keep them awake while feeding. Very supportive in his quiet "I know everything" type of way, lmfao!
