breast feed/formula? what made you come to that desicon to feed that way?

I started out bf with supplementing but it got to be overwhelming for the both of us.Now we are on all formula.

I'm breastfeeding. Occasionally she'll get a supplement but, not regularly. She gets the worst gas when formula fed(it stinks so bad)

I chose to because I just always wanted to and felt like it was the only option for me. My mom breast fed as well and it was just natural to me. My husband has always been very supportive of it.

Breastfeeding and pumping for bottles. The whole thing is ridiculous! I'm bfibg Moira, pumping and bottle feeding Giselle. I bottle feed Moira as well with pumped milk. Moira is allergic to formula. She didn't do well on it before my milk came in. The Pediatrician wanted me to add a little to my milk to give her a bit more calories and it did not go well. Unless she falls off her growth curve, I'm not going to experiment with types that might agree with her. I keep forgetting to add it to Giselle's bottles. Its just one more step to an already too complicated feeding regimen. I can't wait for them to just be breastfed! Bfing has always been uncomplicated and easy, but this time its a part time job just to feed them!

BFing- Still BFing my 18 month old, too. Trying to pump 2oz a day for future use, but I've not done that with my dad staying here.

Breastfeedig and even that feels like a full time job as its every two hours since Clara has a cold and its only 5 minute feeds.
I tried pumping and it was sooo time consuming I spend 20 minutes for one bottle!
I have no idea how I managed to pump and feed my first. I don't have this patience this time around but will have to just deal with it once I get back into work on full schedule in January.

Exclusively breastfeeding, though she has had a few bottles of EBM. I do need to start building up a stash so I can be away from her for a few hours if need be, I just hate the whole process of pumping and BF is so much easier.
