I am 5 months pregnant and have know from the very start that i do not want to br___t feed, for reasons i am not really sure of, but the thought of it makes my toes curl, i am fed up of people saying "br___t it best"..... my question is do most people br___t feed??

Why does it matter? If you don't want to b___stfeed, don't. Don't make such a strongly personal decision based on what's popular.

Breast is NOT best if It's not going to work for you. But, a personal story. I too hated the thought of b___stfeeding. I still do but I wanted to give my son what was made just for him. I gave b___stfeeding a try. It wasn't as bad as I thought once I got past the first few weeks when it really hurts. My son is five months old and is still b___stfed. I work full time so he is bottle (formula) fed when I'm at work. It really has worked out good for us. (a lot cheaper!!) But as I said, if it is something that you don't want to do, don't do it.

Breastfeeding is not for everyone. If you don't want to do it, don't. It's very hard at first so you really have to want to do it to suceed. I personally had a similar situation to Kathryn. I figured I'd at least b___stfeed to give him the Colostrum which is supposed to be so good for him. Then I realized what a huge savings it is. I pump twice at work, b___stfeed twice, and then he gets the rest in formula (normally 6 oz a day). It's your business what you want to do for your baby. I have plenty of friends who did not b___stfeed and their children are fine.

I also know plenty of people who were not b___stfed (including myself) and are fine. I agree, if you don't want to do it, maybe it's not the best thing. I will most likely do it for a few days to get the colostrum, then go to formula. I am a DD to begin with and I know I will not be happy with giant b___bs. If you are not happy, the baby picks up on it. And that is definetly not good for baby!
