I plan to BF again this time I did with my son until he self weaned very close to 2 I am nervous about this time though because with my son I was not working so it was easy to just feed him on demand baby #2 I will have to pump for after the first 8 weeks or so I am determined though so hopefully (FX) it will go very well.

Breastfeeding was a huge struggle the first time around, but I know so much more now that I'm hoping it will be way easier this time. So last time it ended up being about half BF, half formula, but this time I'm hoping to BF completely.

Definitely breast... as this is my first it's one of the things I'm most nervous about. Trying to just remember that our bodies are made for all this stuff!

I will be breastfeeding for the third time around. It's difficult sometimes but it's so worth it. I will also be pumping so DH and the kids will get a chance to feed the baby too.

I'm hoping to be able to breastfeed. I know it doesn't work out for everyone but it's my plan. This is my first so it will be a journey for sure. I'm not sure how long I want to either.

We will breastfeed. Still nursing my 2.5 year old, hoping to gently wean her so I can get a little break before baby.

I will be breastfeeding. However, my milk supply wasn't coming in correctly with DD so I had to switch to formula. I was disappointed because I loved BF'ing her. So we will be trying again and hoping the bbs cooperate!

I will breastfeed baby bee. Hopefully we have less problems than I did with Ari. My plan was to BF for 12 months, but we only got to 6.

I'll nurse once again. I nursed all mine for the first year. It was hard with my first, and my supply got low when I was pregnant with my second and still nursing but some fenugreek fixed that problem.

I would like to bf, but am skeptical. I tried and tried with my first, the pain never let up and I never produced anywhere near enough milk so I switched to formula after a few months of torture. With my second I was more determined than ever, and thought if I had a pump I could force myself to produce more by pumping all the time. Ha! Not even close. I was pumping nearly 24 hours a day and never made more than 2 oz. I took medication to enhance production, I saw a lactation consultant (and the pain never let up with this one either), and none of it helped one whit. So now I will try again, but I have much less hope because I tried pretty much everything I could last time and it was frustrating, painful, time consuming and difficult. Now I feel myself getting frustrated again just thinking about that. I wanted to do it so badly. Sigh.
