  • I FF my son, I was hard to BF when you're working 2 jobs to support a child on your own at 19 and refuse to apply for welfare.

  • both. I BF til he was 4months old and my milk supply didn't come in enough to feed him, the Dr. said it was stress over Dh being deployed, so after that I had to FF him.

  • bf, solely breastfed. I am strictly against formula feeding, I see it as food subsituts, like a meal shake, I could not be happy eating a nasty meal shake all day every day.

  • I did a mix of both. I never made enough milk for my kids and breastfeeding was a miserable experience for me. I personally think it's better to give your child a "substitute" than starve them so I stand behind my choice.

  • I bf my first and third babies. My 2nd was born 10 weeks early and I wasn't able to bf so I pumped and the nurses fed him through a tube. His stomach didn't develop properly so the Drs put him on a special formula. The "substitute" was better than him being very sick and very possibly dying. Now I NEVER judge a formula feeding mom.

  • Yes. Yes I did lol. Both. Girls I FF and boys I BF. Either they would take or wouldn't or my supply was delayed, but they still got fed.
