I tried breastfeeding dd and I did for 5-6wks but I didn't have great support and found it very hard. So if I have another baby I will try to breastfeed definitely. I hope to try harder and longer then with dd but if I do end up bottlefeeding again I think I'll be more ok with it then I was the first time.
I think you'll know what you want to do when your bub arrives. It's nobodies but your choice. Maybe just give it a go or a few days/weeks and go from there.
One thing I'm really looking forward to if I breast feed is not having to buy formula, bottles or teats. And not having to keep sterilizing the bottles and water and carting it around with me where ever I go. Breast feeding seems harder to start with but easier long term. Just take your boobs with you and take out as needed lol
