My friend is having her first baby & has decided to do formula straight away & not attempt bf - (no judgement - she will be an amazing mummy regardless & I support her choice 100%). Both of her sisters have kids who are both formula fed, makes me wonder whether she would have felt differently if they bf? Did the people around you influence your decision to bf or ff? For me personally it did, both my sister in laws are strong bf advocates so I never saw formula as an option for me, however I think I would have probably felt different about it if they weren't. Just curious what other people's experiences were.
