I was never against it. I tried it with my first, but didn't find it anything I wanted to stick with. It was more of a pain than a bonding experience for me. I'll try it again with my 2nd, but already know I'll be doing BF and formula.

Before I had my kids I felt really weird about it, and didn't think that I would do it. But after they were born it just felt natural and instinctual.  I just wanted them fed so I was happy that I felt comfortable with doing it the free way!!! Lol

Same here!  I can't say I WANTED to do it before my son was born but I did it because I knew it was the healthiest and cheapest way!

Not everyone who can physically bf should.  Its ok.  I exclusively bf all my kids I am creeped out by the idea of formula feeding them and bfing was just a perfect fit for us, but its not for everyone.  You wouldn't want to feel you are forcing yourself to breastfeed.

We will see how it goes. I want to do it for the health of my baby, but it took me a while to grasp that my breasts(which I always was so fond of), would never look the same or be looked at the same by my DH.

 I never had any problems or doubts about breastfeeding my children, but my Lamaze teacher also taught la leche league so she was very knowledgeable and supportive.

I tried so hard with DS....but I just couldn't produce enough. He has been on formula since he was a day old (first I was supplementing because I could not produce enough milk...then once I dried up he went exclusively to formula). It kind of makes me sad when I hear women say "how can I get my milk ot dry up, I don't want to BF". I am not syaing anyone is wrong for it, it just makes me sad knowing I can't even BF my son, and I want to so bad.

I guess it is the same feeling you get if you want to get pregnant....then your best friend ends up pregnant before you. You are happy for them...but sad that you can't.

My oldest would NOT take breast milk. Not from breast, not from bottle. My youngest ate more than I could produce....I stopped after 2 weeks and was dried up in 2 days....
