All due respect, breastfeeding can be difficult though and I don't think I'm alone in saying its better to be honest with new moms than give them a fantasized view of what it isn't for everyone. Pushing that kind of fantasy on a new mother can facilitate major depression if for whatever reason it doesn't work for them.
Support needs to be given to women no matter what they choose, and neither option can be easy. Feelings can change, that's true, but new mothers need to know they're not wrong for not wanting to try. No matter what the reason is it simply isn't for everyone, and some women can tell before baby is here it wouldn't work for them.
