    I hope you have an opportunity to bf. I have to say it was one of the most rewarding experiences of motherhood for me (even though we had lots of issues establishing it!)

    I am pro bf BUT also pro choice and think that people should do what is best for them and their circumstances :-)

    Good luck!
    Thank you, I just really want bf to happen. I hate the pump and expressing its a nightmare but will suck it up.

    There is no doubt in "most" cases bf is the best thing for baby - but this needs to be weighed up with the best interests of the mother (if she is on meds, suffering PND or a plethora of other reasons) and circumstances - including that she just doesn't want to!

    It is such an individual choice that every mother should be able to make without fear mongering and or judgement from others. I respect everyone's choice - in my case I was determined to BF because I had a c - section - I was disappointed about not being able to birth naturally so felt BF was something I could do. My sister on the other hand chose from birth to bottle feed - was best for her, more convenient and meant that for her family - we were able to look after bubs more often in the early days :-)

    Just a little update... They are taking out Karishma's drip today!! Yay!! She is still being fed by tube, however and she is not tolerating formula. Luckily I am expressing for her and keeping up the supply. Looks like she will be in the nursery for a few more days yet.

    Actually, is anyone else completely shattered? I was in bed at 7.30 last night, awake at 12 till 2 then backtip sleep till 8. DH is all worried asking how I am going to function on little amounts of sleep... I'm like I'm growing a baby here!
    Haha Nala yes I'm sleeping heaps I'm in bed usually by 8.30-9 and asleep by anywhere between 9.30 and 11 - get up at least twice for the loo and stay asleep until about 9am...growing a baby sure is tiring work!! Oh and I usually have a nap for an hour in the afternoon too lol

    Oh so jealous! You look great Meshell. Wish this baby would drop - even a little! I am SO uncomfortable it's not funny! She is so high up I can feel her move under and between my ribs!! Aarrgghh!! Not sure I can stand another few weeks of this! Might go crazy first. DH, bless him, said "don't worry, only a few more weeks to go"... Maybe I'm hormonal but I was like EASY FOR YOU TO SAY! Grrrr
