I will try to breastfeed again although I wasn't very successful last time due to MANY factors!! I got to 7 weeks last time, hopefully I can do at least that again! (hopefully more!)

Ditto. DS wouldn't latch, so I EP'd for almost seven months, then switched to formula. Hopefully BFing this one will be easier. Formula is so expensive!!

I hope to breastfeed. Obviously I've never done it before so we'll see how it goes

I plan on breast feeding but with my last two I got sick about 2 months after they were born and both times my milk dried up so praying I don't get sick afterwards and am able to breastfeed for the first year

Well, both my kids were hoovers, and i BF them for 6 weeks, but couldnt stand the pain. I have Renauds when breast feeding, so even when their latch is correct it still hurts, becaus ethere is no blood flow anymore to my nipple...yikes. So my plan is to do both for the first 6 weeks to get BFing established then pump and bottle after that so the baby can get EBM until one year. I have no qualms though about giving formula if I need to though.....but not only is it supposed to be the best, but I'm cheap...lol

I want to do breast-milk, but I may have to rely heavily on pumping. I'm going to have to go back to work pretty quick after the baby is born, but I don't want to do formula really.... So at least if it has to be a bottle, it'll be full of my milk.
