I breastfed my daughter happily for 18 months it was difficult for the first two weeks and then it became easy, I loved not having to worry about the whole bottle saga of sterilizing, boiling water and best of all breast feeding is free. It was a good excuse for extra cuddles with my baby. I was very shy about getting my boobs out in front of people so often fed her in the car, in the parent rooms at shopping centres and in the bedroom when we had visitors. I am planning on breastfeeding this time around again because it is easier for me and I personally think it is better for my baby. You can always try it out and see how it goes before making a concrete decision.
