Are you planning to breastfeed?
Are you planning to breastfeed?
Barring an unforseen inability to do so, yes.
Yes, yes, a million times, yes. I will exhaust any and all resources if I have difficulties, but I really hope everything goes smoothly and I’m able to breastfeed without issue.
Yes! And for as long as possible, too.
I’m not pregnant, but I already know I plan to and really really want to. I will be really upset if I can’t for some reason, which I think is actually bad, because things happen, so, I would try not to be too attached to it or devastated if it doesn’t work. But yeah, I plan to for a year, give or take a month or two.
I would love to for six month. I understand that things could prevent this but as long as there is no medical reason, I will be breastfeeding. I plan on breastfeeding as well as pumping so that I could go out for a day or night and leave the child with a sitter when ready.
I am planning to pump and bottle feed. I would like to go exclusively breast milk (if possible, but will supplement if the baby’s nutritional needs are not met by production) for at least 6 months, longer if possible.
Take that with a grain of salt though- I don’t have kids, and we’re not even TTC until August, so who knows what might change between now and when we actually have a baby!
i am not looking forward to it anymore than i am having a baby come out of my vagina, but yes, i plan to give it my best shot for as much as i can in the first year i guess. I just hope it doesn’t hurt too much and that both baby and i figure it out nicely.
ETA: I am also hoping to start pumping as soon as possible so i can go back to working at least one day a week.
I breastfed my little boy for almost 3 years and it’s the best thing ever! It was tough at first, couple times of breast infection due to he didn’t latch properly. Whatever happen, just keep going. I almost stopped at first 2 weeks and then my Fiance asked me to do it at least for 4 months. 2 weeks turned into 4 months, turned into 1 year, 2 years, and 34 months!
Yes! I did with #2 and I will with #3. I actually have been coming up with a master plan to Boyfriend or Best Friend and pump when I am engorged so I can start bulding by supply of extra breastmilk from the get go.
I did with my first for about 2 weeks; I didn’t at all with my second.
I plan to! I want to for at least the first 6 months. It is so good for the baby so I will try my hardest. I have to up my intake on food & watch my energry levels since I have diabetes. But it will be worth it!
Unless you medically can’t breastfeed, you should. It’s the best way to insure that your baby gets the right nutrition and that you lose that baby weight.
@MrsMeow- Since you have already done it do you have any advice or books you recommend in order to pump and build your supply. I will be having my first and am clueless.
Yes, but I will stop if it becomes too much of a headache and/or I’m miserable. My happiness during that time of my life is more important than BFing when there is a supplement that is just as good. I’m sure some will think I’m a terrible person for saying that but formula exists for a reason.
