We have all heard it before: "breast is best." BUT - We all have our unique situations and circumstances. And in the end, we all have to make a decision that is BEST for our babies and for ourselves. Everyone has a right to choose how to feed their baby. This can often be a touchy subject, but it can also be helpful to know others' situations. There is no wrong answer, so don't be shy - please share your story with us! What influenced your decision?




I fully intended to exclusively breastfeed my daughter. But being a single mom and very ill with hyperemesis gravidarum throughout my pregnancy and even in the weeks after delivery, I did not produce enough milk. I pushed through pretty hard for the first nine weeks, pumping, supplementing, etc. But when I got the flu at nine weeks post-partum, my supply basically dried up. I had no choice but to formula feed her. I agonized over it for quite a while, but I know my daughter is healthy and happy just the same
