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!

With dd1 she was iugr and I combination fed from day 1. Being a new mum and her being so little at about 6 weeks I switched to ff. with dd2 I managed to exclusivity bf and was only going to do so until 6 months, she is now 8 months and is bf as I type this. I am glad that with dd1 I tried and she got some colostrum and breast milk. My mum ff my brother and I as she had to return to work soon after our birth. When she watched me bf both girls she did confess that it was something she now regrets not at least trying.

Do what you want to do op. Don't just give it a go because people make you feel you have to or say it's convenient. It's not conveneient for some. When bub is born I am sure you will know what you want to do and just do it. Do what is right and convenient for you.

I would wait until bubs is born and then make the decision. Everything changes after having a baby so something that you feel/think now, may be completely different afterwards.

Why do people put mothers down because of how they feed their baby? Completely ridiculous.
