Yes. I was undecided with my son. I ended up trying to breastfeed him and failed. Because i wasnt sure if i was going to bottle feed or breast feed i really didnt do any research on breastfeeding so i was really uneducated. He had a tongue tie which we didnt find out about until he was a year old so i think thats why i could never get him to latch right. I also didnt seek help..I thought i should just know how to do it but i have since learned that thats not the case at all. He is now 3 1/2 and has severe eczema and a dairy intolerance. I still blame myself thinking if i would have been succesfull at breastfeeding maybe he wouldnt have had these issues. My daughter is due in november and i have done a lot of research. I will not let myself fail this time and make sure i seek help if i need it!
Yes. I did with my third and life was so much easier.
I plan to try again. I breastfed my first until she was 7 months old. Then I had breast reduction surgery so couldn't breastfeed my second baby. I tried really hard and really struggled for a long time with not being able to. So I will try again with my next one, but most likely, I won't be able to.
