There is nothing wrong with not choosing to breastfeed, however, if you’re doing it for your own selfish reason then I feel it’s an issue, not all will agree with my opinion and that’s fine. When I found out I was pregnant I knew from the start I would breastfeed it’s the healthiest choice for your baby, now that being said everyone has good and bad experiences with breastfeeding some babies have trouble latching or the mother just can’t produce enough milk whatever the problem is most mothers can work through it. I told my husband I wanted to breastfeed our child till she was a year old but that just wasn’t in the cards for us. As soon as she was born her and I bonded with breastfeeding but around 2-3 months I started feeling uncomfortable with it… So many people are nasty and sexual when it comes to women breastfeeding so no wonder no one wants to anymore. My doctor told me it was completely normal and we had decided it was best to go to exclusively pumping instead.
Exclusively pumping tales serious commitment you have to pump ever so often to make sure your baby has Plenty of milk again not something everyone can do, I wanted to continue making sure my child was still breastfed even if it wasn’t directly from me this option was perfect for me and was much more comfortable I did they until she turned 6-7 months old and I was proud of what I had accomplished but the problem with exclusively pumping is you have to work twice as work to keep up your milk supply… Sadly mine starting to disappear so it was time to move on and go on formula… Something I had never thought I’d give my baby.
If you can give your baby breastmilk whether its 1 day, a week, a month or 6 months it does wonders for your baby.
Don’t be selfish when it comes to providing for your baby.
