Whether or not you breastfeed is up to you. Chances are your doctor and nurses will at least have you try, and you might as well. Your milk will come in no matter what and it's much, much cheaper than formula! It's also great for you and your baby for a lot of reasons.With my first two I tried but wasn't able to breastfeed. My daughter had latching problems so it was painful. My son was better and the only reason it got painful was because he went through my colostrum very quickly and it took a couple of days for my milk to come in. So essentially, he was just sucking and sucking and wasn't getting anything, which made it painful for me. I'm going to try again this time around, I'm even going to meet with a lactation consultant in the hospital to make sure things go the way they are supposed to.As far as baby clothes go, it depends on what you want to do. You can get great deals at thrift stores, but used clothing creeps me out. I prefer Carter's clothes for my kids. They don't shrink much, and they are longer and thinner than other brands. Some brand of clothing will shrink so that after the first washing they are wider than they are long. I've seen this happen with Circo (Target brand), Baby Gap, and other brands. Old Navy isn't usually too bad, they hold their shape well. But what you prefer will depend on how your baby is shaped. Mine tend to have long torsos, so the Carter's clothes fit them really well. But if you have a really chubby baby they may be too tight. I usually get my clothes at Babies R Us or Target. Carter's has a line at Target called Just One You. Oh, and I find that Gerber clothes are tiny, they run about one size smaller than other brands.
