Do you have friends or relatives who have decided in advance NOT to breašfeed? What were their reasons? I do know that some women who have had breast alterations sometimes can't nurse but aside from a true physical inability, why wouldn't a gal at least try it and see?
I didn't and never planned to. They are 8 and 5. Healthy weight and well adjusted. Life goes on.
