The OP is right, I personally think bottlefeeding isn't easy, to me breastfeeding seems the easier option. No washing, sterilising, buying formula, new teats every few months, boiling water etc. That's alot of work. I had every intention of breast feeding my babies but I don't even like my husband touching me there so the thought of having a baby do it made me really uncomfortable and horribly anxious. In the end I was calmer and more happy bottle feeding even though it is a pain in the butt.
