This is rather embarrassing and I am having a hard time dealing with this. I am having my fourth. I successfully breastfed my first two for over a year. With my third little one I had to have surgery and had a long hospital stay so we wound up formula feeding her. I loved it. I truly dislike breastfeeding. We are getting ready to have our fourth and I am really torn on the whole thing. I can't pump so it is either breastfeed and hate it again or formula feed and be happy. My hubby would love to feed our little one since he has never been able to. He was deployed with my 3rd so he never got to feed her.
I don't know what to do. I feel like a bad Mom. Am I alone?

I BF my first for 6 weeks & my DS for 3 wks. Yea, I HATED it!!! HATE, HATE, HATED it!!! Stopping was the best thing I did for the whole family!! I would shake and cry when I heard my DD cry to be fed - it was making me not even want to be in the same room with her... so switching was best for both of us!! So, I knew going in I was only doing about 2-3 weeks with my DS so it wasn't so bad. As my DOCTOR said... do what's best for the whole family... if it's not working for you it's not working for your child either. Best decision I ever made!!!

Nope, you're not alone and you're not a horrible mom.
