I breast fed my 1dd until just over a year(then she got teeth) and my 2dd until 9 mo. My ds was not breast fed as I had to go to basic within 6 months of his birth. I haven't seen a difference and we are now planning on child 4. Should I or shouldn't I breast feed the next time?Answer Question

Breast feeding for me was miserable - painful, nauseating, just horrible and not "bonding" at all. I never made enough milk with either child and we had to supplement formula - I wasn't going to be one of those crazy moms who starves their kid because I wanted to BF only. I don't think it's that big of a deal, but the BF brigade will try and convince you that it is

It's funny about all the things women worry when it comes to breastfeeding, especially when you haven't even started. I say this because once you start breastfeeding, it's amazing how you and your body adjusts. I do breastfeed my kids, but that is me. You just need to sit down and think about it and decide when your baby is born. Good luck, no decision is wrong.

I BF DS, for it is easy, and FREE. The bonding thing, I am no more bonded to him than I was to DD (who was FF), so I never bought into that. BF my DS just worked out great this time around, so I stuck with it. :) You have to do what works best for you and your children.
