Don't feel guilty!! You did what was right for you and your baby and that's all you can do. Don't let anyone ever make you feel bad about it. When people asked me I'd say something "No. We tried but it just didn't work out."
This is my story, exactly. I don't feel guilty at all. We tried, it didn't work and I made sure my baby was fed and happy. Doesn't matter how she was fed, just that she was. She is now a very happy and healthy 3 1/2 year old.
