  • i decided very early in my pregnancy that i would not. and i didn't and i am so glad i stuck to that decision because it was best for the both of us.

  • I am. I pump while at work, but when I'm home "no bottles."

  • Yes, I breastfeed it is the best thing you can do for your child period...did anyone see the article that said you kid is 73% less likely to die of SIDS if you breastfeed, that is just the tip of the benefits to your child...don't forget you can pump and put it in a bottle to go and also it gives your husband a way of being part of the feeding process.

  • I am honestly not sure this time around. I breastfed my first two and bottle/breastfed my third and realized that it puts me into depression. So I am not sure this time around what I am going to do. My goal is to start out. I know that I have made it past a year successfully but in a full depression both time. It wasn't until I had to stop for medical reasons with my third that I realized that it was the actual breastfeeding that was doing it to me.

  • I breastfed my DD for a year and am currently breastfeeding my 15 mth old DS.

    The beginning with DS was so so so so so so difficult but I refused formula feeding and managed in the end with lots of support, internet reading about latching problems etc. It took him 5 weeks to get back to birth weight but now is a healthy happy plump booby boy lol
