Good on you OP!!! Having been both a FF and BFing mummy I have truly seen both sides. My first BF attempt was miserable and I nearly killed myself for 6 weeks before giving myself permission to switch. Oh the RELIEF!!! Absolute BEST decision I ever made.
Second time around I went in with an open mind ("I'll give it a go but it's not the end of the world if it doesn't work out") and am still BFing my 15 month old.
I fully respect those who either switch early or FF from the start. FWIW my eldest has just started school and is a very switched on little boy. And there was no special line for those who were FF!!!!

Hello and to all. Also 's as I too am a formua feeding mummy
I wanted to BF and tried as hard as I possibly could, but ended up FFing. I FF my DS as well and just for the record, he's a brainiac in advanced classes, plays soccer and is strong and healthy, never had more than the common cold in all of his life.. so FF has done no wrong and is OK by me
For whatever reason you found yourselves FF, it's OK!!!!!

What I really don't get and was just discussing with DF, why is it anyone else's business how we feed? It doesn't affect them in any way! Isn't it enough that our kids are being fed??

I tried BFing but it didn't work for my DS & I... I am glad I swapped as I was missing out on so much at the beginning of his life... I was miserable & DH was doing all the bonding with my EBM, I couldn't maintain the expressing after 7 weeks so FF was the only option, I just couldn't keep going like I was going, for my sanity & my bub it was the best thing for my beautiful now thriving little boy, no more chicken legs in this house!!

Id rather have a healthy happy ff bub than an underfed bf bub.. Which is what I would have had had I continued to bf!!
