This is sacrilege coming from an avid breastfeeding mama.... But... I LOVE FORMULA! It makes my baby happier than I ever could, it's easy, and I have such freedom! It's going to be hard to breastfeeding my future kids after knowing what ffing is like. That is all

I started out BFing this baby, but due to a specifivc blood pressure medication that is a diuretic and also helps my PCOS symptoms, I had to quit. S many of the ladies on my board seem absolutely miserable with BFing, from mastitis to stress to horrible sleep deprivation to diet modifications for baby's tummy lol! Seems like they are adding insult to injury. While I applaud them for their diligence and sacrifice, I am content with the bottle!

Formula also makes my baby happier than my breastmilk ever did. But I still wish I could have BF.

I do like sharing feeding duty with DH at night though

Most people look at me like I have four eyes and six arms when I say bottle feeding is so much easier, to me. At daycare, bottle feeding was easier then breast feeding ever was. I nursed my daughter for over a year and loved it, but I would much rather clean bottles and mix formula or pump then nurse.
