I currently have two son's, they are 10 year old twins. They weren't breastfed because I didn't produce enough milk to feed them both. My Dr. said that I could alternate and such...but being my first pregnacy and knowing it would be difficult as is, I wanted to do one or the other, so I bottle fed.
Now, I think that I'm pregnant (pretty good chance). The problem is that with both pregnacies (my 2nd, I was a saragent for my mother), I have a very hard time getting a possitive test. With the saragent pregnacy, It wasn't till I was 3 months that I got a possitive test...I even got a negative blood test! I've taken a First Response test, which non surprisingly, came up negative. However, I'm having all the signs I did both times that I was prego before.
My concern is that if I am pregnant, and I've been giving it a lot of thought the last week or so (if I am, I'd only be about 3 weeks at most)...is whether or not to breastfeed. I can see all of the advantage's and the pro's definatly outweight the con's. But, the thing that I'm worried about the most is too much of an attachment in a bad way. For example...baby not sleeping without me, always having to be in my bed or can't sleep, finding a babysitter that can put up with a screaming baby since i won't be there if i'm working...and other's along those lines. For the mothers that have breastfed, have you had any issues like this? I love being close to my children and having that bond, but I want them to be social and not need me to the extent that they aren't open to all the other things that life has to offer.
