I am the mother of a 2.5yrold who i b/f from birth with no attachment dramas but found he became very reliant on the need to feed2sleep. I wanted to demand feed him so i was feeding him everytime he cried/woke which was about every 45mins which resulted in him being in my bed.
Expressing didnt work and he wouldn't take the bottles anyway so i never got a break-couldn't leave him with anyone because he wanted to feed all the time.
At 15mths old he was still in my bed being fed to sleep and feeding sometimes 10times a night(purely for his comfort!!)- I had to attend tresillian and do dual weaning and settling and since then he has been a great sleeper with a new found independence.
So anyway....(sorry for life story) i am 32weeks pregnant and can't decide whether i should try b/f again but be strict with routine or start with bottles from birth so i don't have to be the sole feeder! I think after the first time round i have resentment for the sole provider role that comes with b/f.
Anyone have similar experiences or any advice for this looming decision??
