Breastfeed...eventually add pumping breastmilk into a bottle, and bottle feeding with that. Really going to try and avoid formula.

I chose breastfeed and supplement. I really want to BF but it is such a source of anxiety for me right now! I'll be going back to work after a couple months so I know eventually we will have to supplement so I am just going to accept it now! I plan on pumping but at time I work really long hours.

Breastfeed. Also pump. That and when I dry up, I can still give breast milk.

Same here! I BF DS to 12 months with no formula and plan to with this one as well. We introduced bottles of EBM around 2 months when I wanted a little break

Breastfeeding hasn't worked well for me in the past, but I am going to pump and bottlefeed the baby.

I am going to bottlefeed. I have to go back to work after just 2 weeks and I don't know how I would make it work.

I am planning on breastfeeding this baby ... but having said that if it doesn't work out and I have to bottlefeed then I am not going to beat myself up about it!

I haven't decided yet. I couldn't BF DD because she wouldn't latch. Now I have cysts in my milk ducts in my one breast that get infected all the time even when I am not pg. So I don't even know if I can. So.... if I can't I can't no big deal to me. Formula is fine in my opinion.

I plan on BF as long as I am able. I made it about 8 months with my DD and then had to supplement half and half. Hopefully I will make it longer this time!
