You can do it. Just tell yourself that any amount you can give your child is a benefit (you should not feel judged). I EBF with our first. He hated a bottle and my parent had to squirt it into him when I went back to work. Lession - start a bottle early. My second nursed from me. However he would only accept a bottle of 1/2 bm and 1/2 formula. We went with it. With Ellianna I am going back to work in just a couple of weeks. She will nurse when I am with her. She will have a bottle when I am at work. I hope to express enough for her. Reality is that I have a hectic day at work. She is likely to get a little formula as well. I know that we all have to work together. My goal is not to feel guilty.
