I was for a couple of months, and no that did not influence my decision. I always wanted to bf my baby for as long as I can, b/c I think it's whats best for us.

My mom said that she BF me for about 6 weeks and ran into some issues so went to formula, she said that they didn't have any support for BFing mom's like they do now and she had no one to turn to for help. I knew as soon as I got pregnant with my first that I was going to BF and I successfully EBF him for 18 months when he self weaned. I'm still really sad that Micah refuses to nurse but I'm determined to pump so he get the benefit of BM, my goal is 12 months for him!!

I was BF for a year. It sorta influenced my decision to BF. (if it's good for my mom/me, it's good for me/my daughter!). But for the most part, i just wanted to BF my kid for as long as I can.

Thanks SavaAngel for my wonderful signature!

I was BF til 6-8 weeks or so, then my mom went back to work. I doubt pumps were as good or offices as accepting way back then It didn't really influence my decision, I wanted to do what I knew was best for me and my daughter. I do remember my mom BFing my youngest sister (6 years younger). I think she went til about 6 months with her. I don't know if my mom is as comfortable with me BFing now that Juliet is older, but too bad My MIL BF all 4 of hers from 18 months - 3.5 years (the youngest) and is super supportive. Actually this past week I got a lot of positive support from my ILs families

I *think* I was, but I don't actually really know... so I guess it didn't influence me at all either!

I always assumed I was, but turns out not! Mom said she FF all of us, that she did *try* to BF me, but that I basically refused breast & bottle and went straight to a cup. I think she said she tried to BF me for a month . . . then FF . . . . then at the dr's recommendation (that was the recommendation at the time ) weaned me to cow's milk at 2 months of age. I'm suprised I'm not lactose intolerant.

No, I had decided that Kaiden would have BM before getting pregnant, just seemed the natural thing to do.
