Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
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?!

I hated breast feeding. Was much happier when I eventually switched to formula. I did it cause its better for baby.

I breastfeed not because I HAVE to but because to me its what is best for MY child. But to each their own.

Your body, your choice. Oh wait...that only applies if you want to murder your unborn child...If you don't want to BF, you are horrible and CPS should take your child away...I always forget these things!

CM logic...I love it.

I bf for 15 months both my kids. Plenty of times I wanted my freedom back , put I remembered myself this is not going to be forever and if I give up , I will dissapoint myself. So I tried to make it as enjoyable as possible , and save those memories in my heart. Time go so fast.

I bf for right over 2 yrs. It is definitely a huge commitment, but totally worth it. Sometimes I didn't feel like it, but most of the time it was no issue( until the end.. I was ready to be done ). I was fortunate to never have to supplement with formula, but don't look down on how others feed their babies.

I combo feed because I only have one boob. I breastfed one child off one boob for ten months...she was a light eater. I know that my situation makes things more difficult than "normal" but I am pretty sure that I would hate breastfeeding regardless. I don't know why anyone likes it, really.

 Good for you. Do what feels right for you. I did because I wanted to do the best thing I could do for my babies.  By the time I was ready to wean each of them sitting there doing nothing made me crazy. I wanted to get up and be doing something with no one attached to me. I was very ready to wean. I don't think you have to breast feed for years for the baby to benefit.

I didn't even try to BF. She has been healthy and happy her whole life. If you want to great if you don't want to great as well. Your life is for you to make decisions about. Nobody else gets to say what you do or don't do.
