breastfeeding. seriously but I feel so so guilty just thinking about formula. gosh I would just love to give this cranky constantly hungry baby a bottle of formula and let dad take care of her for a while!!! I feel like everyone would judge me if I quit though...especially my mom :/ I just feel this pressure to continue any time I tell anyone I hate it they act like im completely crazy...cause who could hate something so beautiful then they look at me like im some terrible and neglectful mom.

Go to formula if that's what you want. BF sucked. I too hated it. My DD started formula at 12 weeks. She's happy and healthy 7 years later. ;)

Hell my DS who was BF longer was the one who got sick all the time.

Could you maybe pump and let dad bottlefeed her now and again?

Lots of women who breastfeed hate it. It's just one of the many sacrifices a parent makes for their children's benefit.

Do what you need to do. But imo formula is much more difficult.

Of my bio kids, I BF'ed one and FF'ed the other. There is nothing wrong with formula.

  I never enjoyed it that much either, but I did it for 4 and a half years of my life. Don't do it just because somebody else wants you to!

Not all women like bf.

Do what is mentally best for you and baby. No one else gets a say. If you don't start standing up for yourself as a parent, you are in for a rough18 years.

If you don't like don't do it! Ignore all the people who try to rule your life, like the ones that say that you need to sacrifice yourself because you're a parent.
