I'm curious as to why you didn't bf if ff was do hard?
Formula comes in a tin - with instructions. Boobs do not.
There are clear instructions on the formula tin, bottles and teats.
There are various types of formulas/bottles/teats that you can switch to if the current one isn't working.
You can see exactly how much of a bottle your bub has had.
You can go to your gp/chn or call the various support services.
And to answer your question, yes there is support for me because I seek it... and also because I spend my day surrounded by health professionals... The same would apply if I chose to formula feed, although that would be much less intense.
I'm just going to say it and wait to get flamed because you think it's okay to insult people...
How can you try to make people feel guilty for receiving more support with breastfeeding conpared to someone that formula feeds? We deserve more support. The effort it takes to formula feed can not even be compared to breastfeeding.
There, I said it.
It's not a competition. Everyone's experiences are different and the levels of support people receive is different depending on which hospital you're at, which midwife might be on, whether your family or friends support you in whichever way you are feeding and a billion other variables.
There is no easier or harder just different experiences. It's not a pi$$ing contest.
