Breastfeeding or furmula

edited July 2016 in Breastfeeding
Do or did you breastfeed your baby or do or did you give it formula?

I have already decided before I got pregnant that I would rather give him formula for various reasons. I did discuss it with my husband and doctor before giving birth and they gave me a pill after he was here so that I would not produce milk. I have been very happy with my choice although a lot of people will disagree with me. For me the advantages were that I would not have any problems with infections or sore breasts, or not knowing if the baby gets enough milk and most of all my husband and I could organise getting up in the night and feeding our baby better.

We arranged on one night him, one night me, which gave both of us a full night sleep every second day.

What´s your view on this?



  • I hope to be able to breastfeed. It makes me nervous to think of making formula when I'm sleep deprived and it will be much less expensive. I also have been around a lot of breastfeeding mothers and it seems like a great way to force yourself to slow down and take it all in. I need routines like that in my life or I get caught up in the future or the past and miss out on the present. I also like the added health benefits for the baby and myself.
