    DS had colostrum straight after he was born and had formula after that. He only ever had it that one time. I won't get into my reasons but I will tell you to do what's right for *you.* Happy mum = happy bub. If you don't want to breastfeed for whatever reason, then don't. If you feel that you would like to breastfeed and that you'd be happier doing that then do just that. Only you know what's right for you and bub = )

    I agree with (almost) everyone. If you can try to feed or express colostrum if you want/can because it is valuable to babies health and if you choose to then switch to formula.

    Best luck and congratulations

    You can do whatever you like, your body and your baby.

    If you can at least give your baby the colostrum of the first couple days that is the best star you could give your child. The colostrum contains the highest anti bodies and is rich in so many vitamins. Being free I think it would be silly to go straight to formula

    I had trouble breast feeding my first two. I must admit I was quite tense about it all and had PND with DD so I think I mentally set myself up to fail in a way.

    This baby will be number three for me (I'm 18 weeks), and I'm going to breast feed. But if it doesn't work out then I'll slowly wean. Just going to wait and see.

    So maybe keep your options open? It doesn't have to be one or the other, you could do both
