  • I breast feed for 5 weeks, but baby was still hungry after it so I firstly conbined sma formula with breast milk, then gradually stopped breast feeding, he's a lot happier now, it's a shame becuase I got to really enjoy breast feeding

  • My kids weren't fussy about it, so I breastfed and used formula, any kind of formula, and even used homemade formula. I just fed the kids depending on the situation at the time.

  • all mommy milk first daughter, the second has formula every day before bed and food the rest of the day with breast milk, i didnt introduce formula to my second until she was 4 months, when she was waking up every hour and a half at night for more, and i really needed to sleep. when i introduced formula, she started sleeping longer stretches at night.

  • I breast fed exclusivly my first two till 8 months.

    With my 3rd dd I had a severe epi headache and also a uterine infection and was admitted back into the hospital for another full week. I could NOT keep up with feeding her physically...but tried and pumped too.

    So she has been both breast and bottle fed. She is now 10 weeks old and its about half and half.

  • 1 formula 1 breastfed. I wish I would have stuck with bfing my first- but I was too depressed and was starting to resent my son when he would try to nurse. I know I made the best choice for our family at the time, but in hind sight I wish I would have used more bfing resources and had more emotional support. After bfing Dd for a year I wish I could have shared the experience with my son.
