Why did you decide to formula feed?

I will be formula feeding. I'm just not comfortable with the idea of breastfeeding. No one in my family ever breast fed. Didn't know anything about it until I was a teen and I had one relative that did and she came into my house in the same room I was with 3 of my friends. Whipped out her boob and started feeding her baby. She didn't even cover up. Very traumatic for me, because for the rest of high school I was tortured over it.
Needless to say I'm just not comfortable with it. I was bottlefed, both my sisters were. I have a half sister who was breast fed but she is no healthier than the rest of us. So I am happy with my decision to formula feed.
I considered breastfeeding for half a second when I became pregnant but only half a second
