Re: Anybody ever feel guilty about not BF?

So nce to read so many stories of women who feel the same way i do!!
I have often felt guilty... Even though I bf my DD for 6 months, because she always had to be supplemented with formula, and because sooo many of my momma friends are still bfing st 18 months. I physically could not continue beyond 6months. But I often have felt embarrassed Bec I'm the only one in the group with a bottle ... And these are my (very kind) friends!
ITA with the ladies who are asking us to consider why we feel the guilt. For me, there was so much pressure...it felt like a huge failure.
I've now come to peace with it mostly, bc I'm a great mom, and there is a lot more to it than what I feed(fed) my baby...
