Please no debating here! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Thanks!

Will your LO be breast or bottle fed? If you are a first time mom do you have a support system that will help you with the decision you chose? If you are a BTDT mom is your decision different this time around?

Breast. And nope, not different. I nursed Holden for 14 months and Lyla for 18 months.

I very much prefer breast, but this is a first baby so not sure how that will go. I'd assume its kinda hard to do 100% breast since they can get full at times, and one ends up pumping some milk. I suppose in the end I'm okay as long as it's breast milk.

I wanted to bf so much with Megan but I missed pretty much the first day with her and when I tried the 2nd day she wasn't having it. Then it also took a week for my milk to even come in. So maybe the 2nd time around I will try again.

Breastfeeding. =) I nursed DD till 18 months. The girls could be really uncomfortable sometimes, but it's all worth it in the end to me.

I think this time, since I had such a hard time with it last time and my milk still never came in 3 weeks later, that I'm just going to exclusively pump. So bottle fed, but with breast milk. As much as I can. I'm hoping that the constant pumping will help the milk come in a little better this time around. We'll see.

Breast is the plan. With DS I gave up early, with DD my supply was great and we did great but there was issues on her GI part so after 8 wks and eliminating stuff and such we ended up on a very expensive formula. Third times a charm right?!

BF. I had wonderful BF relationships with both of my kids, and I feel it's really important to be able to do that for them.

I would like to breastfeed
(but I'm not at all opposed to pumping or formula if it doesn't work out for me/us).

I had a really hard time BF DS. I ended up exclusively pumping for the first 6 months. It was A LOT of work. I'm going to try to BF baby #2. This time around I'm not going to be afraid to ask for help or even see a lactation consultant if need be.

planning to breastfeed again. I'm still breastfeeding tyler and have pretty much exclusively (minus some water and table food of course) since he was born 8 months ago!I'm hoping he'll be done right about a year so that i can take a little break before starting again.

BF definitely. My daughter was a preemie and I had to pump for the first month, but once we got going it was such a great bonding & comfort thing. I just hope its easier this time!

I want to BF and pump when needed.... as I'm not sure how I'm gonna handle BF in public. This is our first so I really hope this works out for me as I have had surgery on my L breast and won't know if that'll effect things.
