Re: Deciding not to breast feed in advancei
I chose to formula feed before I gave birth, simply because.I.wanted.to. No ulterior motives, I wasn't worried about my boobs sagging, I wasn't doing drugs, going out partying, or anything like that. I just didn't WANT to breastfeed. IMO it is no one's business but mine and DH's what we chose to do with our DS, and I don't think someone needs a reason to formula feed, nor should they have to defend their decision to anyone. Wanting to is reason enough. I also don't think it is anyone's place to judge what another mother does or does not do with her child.
I do wish we were able to have more children so I could have the experience of nursing, but it didn't happen. It doesn't make me regret the choice I made with DS.

After 12 years of TTC #2, multiple miscarriages, failed infertility treatments, and two failed (not on our end) attempts at becoming foster/adopt parents in two states...we gave up. I stick around for the awesome conversation.
