I read on another post someone said they didn't bf because they didn't want to, is it just me or is that honesty super refreshing?!
I am bfing and last night I really didn't want to, my nipples hurt lil man was being very rough the past few days (he's 4 mo)
I bf because I feel I HAVE to

Do you bf. and do you honestly love it all the time?!

With dd I wanted to breast feed so bad, and it didn't work out. We didn't click, I tried and tried. So with my ds I didn't want to breat feed at all but I felt like I would try it , at least for the diet few days so he'd be healthy. He ended up doing so good & I really like to breast feed. I feel a connection and I really like our personal time.

I have him one formula bottle so far in his little life, I read one formula a week won't throw off your milk production. How is it supplementing with formula? I tried to avoid it as long as possible but dude bfing is hard!!

I did it because I wanted to. Plus, Im to cheap to spend $30 on a can of crap. :) if I wouldnt eat it or drink it, my kiddo doesnt eat or drink it.

I breastfed mine for 21 and 23 months, there were MANY times where I really didn't want to, but I did. I personally can't fathom not doing it at all "just because I didn't want to" that just sounds so immature, selfish, ignorant... If you can't for some reason, or thought you couldn't for some reason, that's one thing, but I just don't get not even trying for no reason other than "I didn't want to".

I breastfed DD and weaned her at 11 and a half months cuz I WANTED 2 lol she would have keept on going but I was so so done. If you dont want to breastfeed you dont half to. It dont matter what other people think, just do what makes YOU and the baby happy
