Hi Ladies :) im new to this site, read alot of threads and im very intrested in some of the post's and i see you all get alot of advice and support needed, so i thought i'd post my bit in :) ive decided i dont want to br___t feed even tho i get told its better for the baby i really have no reason to why i dont want to so i cant explain myself on that one, i was just wondering when i tell my midwife and nurses i dont want to br___tfeed will it be a big hassle? and if i dont have a good enough reason will they make me do it? im really not sure on that one and i dont want a big fuss so i was wondering if they would apreciate my decision? please reply to what you think thanks

Its a personal decision. Breastfeeding has been proven to be more healty, but if it's not for you dont do it. There are plenty pros and cons to formula and b___stfeeding just do what fits YOUR lifestyle best!

Hi Jackie. I am not going to b___stfeed this time either. I did with my first child and I HATED it! He was a reflux baby so I would get ingorged and it was the worst experience of my life! They cannot make you do anything. Good luck!

I agree, they cannot MAKE you do anything. Misty, I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I bf both of my children, and it was an awesome bonding experience for me. But like you said, it isn't for everyone. Also, some women sometimes have a harder time producing enough milk. Jackie, it is solely your decision, and I totally respect that. I just want to make one little suggestion. For the first few days, you might think about doing it so the baby can get the colostrum. Take a look at this page. it explains it http://www.lalecheleague.org/FAQ/colostrum.html. You could stop at any time you wanted to. Anyway, you do whatever makes YOU comfortable. Don't worry about nurses, that isy our decision! good luck
