    Lol, this was how I felt about it too.

    I did play up the benefits of bottlefeeding to him though to make him more comfortable with my feeding choice.

    My decision but DP was completely supportive. He knew I BF as long as I could. I went 5.5 months longer with my second than I did with my first and both I stopped due to not being able to keep my weight on!

    We discussed it at length during the 3 months I breastfed DD. She wasn't gaining weight and was very unsettled, I was constantly feeding and pumping. When we discovered she had intolerances I tried to restrict my diet but it was all too much and DD just struggled to feed and gain weight. DH would have switched to the bottle a lot earlier if it was up to him but he wanted it to happen when I was ready. DD went on to a prescription formula and as soon as I saw how much happier and healthier she was I was finally able to accept it and move on without regret. Of course I wish it hadn't gone the way it did, but no regrets for making the decision.

    I think in the end it has to be your decision, but it helps to discuss your feelings thoughts with your partner. I bf for eight months but it got too hard to express when I went back to work plus I think due to the stress of this I wasn't producing enough to sustain my ds.
    I hope to be able to do the same with ds#2 when he arrives but I won't hesitate to change to ff if it's not working.

    I guess you could say my body decided, it just didnt produce enough milk.
    At 4 weeks DS wasnt very much over birth weight so we switched to formula.
    DF was extremely supportive but it had gotten to the point where for DS' health it had to be done.
