I am just about 20 weeks pregnant, and am starting to get all kinds of questions in regards to whether I plan on breastfeeding.
I am having trouble deciding, and am hoping to get some advice on how others made the decision.
My biggest concern is that I will be returning to work part time shortly after Jelly Bean arrives, and as such will have to express quite frequently if I do decide to breastfeed. I also do a bit of travelling with work (just overnight or two night trips) and that will mean a great deal of expressing. In all convenience considerations, it will be much easier and benefitial for me to go straight to formula. My mother was unable to breastfeed and she said she does not feel as though we were disadvantaged or she missed out on anything, but I am worried I may regret it down the track. Also, I am going private, so I fee like there will be a lot of people around judging me for making a decision based primarily on what is most convenient.
My DH has told me he will support me no matter what, and doesn't seem to have a preference. So I am kind of making this decision alone. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
