I was another one who just said I would give bf a go. In fact I felt kind of shy and embarrassed about it! Don't know why. I also just told people I will do whatever works for me and the baby! I figure its none of their business how I feed my baby. Once she was born I attempted breastfeeding and found it quite natural and easy. Then I became determined to make sure I bf her! Funny how I stopped being shy about it. Now I exclusively pump and give her ebm due to her heart problems and wonder if people out are looking at my bottle fed baby judging me-having no idea that its not formula in the bottle. But I wouldn't care either way. As long as bub is growing, happy and healthy. That's the most important thing.
You need to do whatever feels right for you. Ignore judgements. People who judge aren't worth it!
