Or did you breastfeed?

Try and be nice.


I didn't because of medication and personal reasons.

Didn't want to. Had to go back to work in 8 weeks and didn't want to pump at work.

 I simply never considered it until my third at which time I decided I just didn't want to.

DS would never latch long enough to get hind milk. 

I ended up pumping and then switched to formula when I realized I was spending too much time pumping and not enough time holding him and snuggling him.

With my first, I lacked education and support.

I did.

I BFed for 21 months with my oldest.

With my youngest, I was only able to EBF for 4 months before work began to interfere and my supply dropped too low to continue. She thrived after that on formula so I didn't feel too bad about it.

I didn't BF my oldest because of lack of support and I had no clue what I was doing.

I did with my second, and she was tongue tied(got it snipped when she was a month) and pumped for a month. But I kept getting sick and the meds kept messing me up.

But I am definitely going to BF this baby.

I did breastfeed because I felt it was the logical thing to do. My body was making it for a reason.
