Re: Anybody ever feel guilty about not BF?

I totally know where you're coming from with the guilt - I tried for 9 weeks to BF my son after a rocky start in his first few days of life. I ended up pumping the entire time and feeding him that - but was to the point where I wanted to run over that darn pump with my car!!! I had bruised, sore, and chaffed nipples from pumping every 3-4 hrs for 9 WEEKS STRAIGHT - So I switched to formula. Do I still struggle some days with feeling guilty - yes - but I know that a happy, healthy, SANE mama is better for him than any breastmilk will ever be
