I was set on breastfeeding with my first child but it didn't work out. She had a weird habit of relaxing her jaw after getting latched on and it made trying to nurse impossibly difficult. I cried over having to give her formula but it was the best thing for both of us. She has always been the smartest, healthiest, biggest girl so I haven't felt bad about that decision.With my second I decided that I would definitely try to breastfeed, but I knew I wouldn't have to feel bad if it didn't work. In the hospital my on nursed like a champ and I was so happy, but then my milk didn't come in quickly enough. He went through all my colostrum immediately and had to have a couple of bottles of formula because he was so hungry. Once we got home he had no patience for nursing, he only wanted a bottle because he knew it was easier to drink from. I pumped for as long as I could but the first week home he was drinking 6oz bottles and I just couldn't keep up. Having to spend 30 minutes every 2 hours to pump while trying to take care of an 18 month old and a newborn was too much. So, after just 6 weeks he was on formula too.I'm currently pregnant with my third and I'm more determined than ever to make breastfeeding work. But, if it doesn't I won't be too upset.I think the best way for any mother to handle this decision is to at least TRY to breastfeed. Your milk will come in no matter what so giving it a try won't hurt anything or anyone. If, after you give it a chance you find that it just isn't working out or that you just don't feel comfortable (emotionally) with it, don't feel bad about going to formula. And if you do go with formula make sure you choose an organic brand.
