I am 35 weeks pregnant and I really don't want to breastfeed, I am not sure if i am being selfish but I dont like the whole breastfeeding thing. Is the anyone who didnt breastfeed or anyone who can advice regarding the breastfeeding?
I would like to take the time to encourage you today!!!!
Breastfeeding is a CHOICE!!! You have he right not to want to breastfeed. Coming from a mother that is still breastfeeding her 10 month old boy and loving it. I was first dead set against it because of my 1st experience and failing at doing it.
The truth about breastfeeding it HARD and Amazing!! It truly takes dedication and if your mind is made to not do it rather not do it. It is a journey of falling and getting up.
What ever you decide please ask if I can help in any way the only advise I have is take the first 6 weeks (if you decide to breastfeed) and breastfeed dedicate yourself to it forget the dirty dishes and laundry leave the house babies is only small for so long
How old is your little one now? What have you decide regarding breastfeeding?
I'm so glad so hear that I'm not the only mom that doesn't like breastfeeding....luckily I haven't had enough milk....or maybe it was just an all-in-the-mind thing, but I was very happy not to breastfeed. My husband, on the other hand was not that happy as it is the best for your baby and cost nothing . But as Svdw said, it's a choice!!
Breast feeding is one of the best things that you could give to your child unless you really don't have enough milk to express from your breast. It is not your fault.
But if you have milk to give and you don't want the whole "breastfeeding idea" well that is your choice.
I opt to breastfeed my children because I want to give them the natural nourishments that came from me. And I was never gone wrong with that because they grew up healthy and never been sick. Breast feeding is an amazing bonding between the mother and a child and I am proud that my children never missed it.
My little princess is now 3 months and growing alot, I didnt breast feed for the first 2 weeks... my mom and other people around really disaprove the fact that I was not breast feeding even my husband didnt like the idea. At the moment I am breastfeeding and enjoying it, I never thout I could enjoy it but it is the best thing I have ever done. Winter came and now its disapearing and my little one didnt even get aick not even once.
Breastfeeding is the way to go and I am liking it ☺☺☺
