Personally.... I set my mind on breastfeeding (natural instinct) and stuck with it!

Uh...well...put me in the "there's another way to feed a baby?" camp. Formula? Not something anyone in my family used that I saw...*I* got formula only because I was adopted

I am a very scientific person, and I read all the facts, and knew it was the best (dare I say ONLY) way to go.. but I was completely grossed out by the whole concept.  Still, I decided I must do it. 

Then, my baby refused to latch.. or refused to wake up is more like it, and my first few weeks were a BFing nightmare... so difficult.. and no LC was any help at all... I am just stubborn enough that I took it like a challenge, and refused to give up... got that baby on (with no help except the Internet, and a friend that told me it took her 4 months. to get baby to breast.. figured if she could do it in 4 months, I could go one more day trying!) I sincerely believe God put me through that so I would get over my "squeamishness" about the whole thing and learn to appreciate it.

Thank God my DD2 latched on within minutes fo birth, and nursed great until I weaned around 18 months.  I hope this next one is like her!

I knew I would breastfeed before I was even pregnant - there was never any question.  What I didn't know is that I would go from the idea of breastfeeding for the first 6 months to a year, to planning to allow my daughter to self-wean.  

And it is all this group's fault!
