Oh and it took me three different formulas before I found one she liked and would drink (little fussy pants!)
Now there are some great teats that mimic breastfeeding more closely (My third bub was prem and went home on EBM bottles using the medela Calma teats and eventually transitioned to the breast without nipple confusion) so they may be worth checking out.

Are you in Melbourne or Brisbane by any chance Loco?
ABA have physical stores in those cities so you could get properly fitted for a really good maternity bra which might help you feeling more comfortable?
My friend kept getting mastitis and went to the ABA shop, she was wearing the wrong size bra, got fitted properly and has not had mastitis since.

I have a wireless Victoria's Secret bra that supports and looks sexy, I hadn't been wearing it but put it on the other day because I was wearing a dress that the nursing bra looked ridiculous in and I was just sick of it. I often breastfeed at home alone so I don't really need the convenience of the nursing bra all of the time. I was shocked at how great my breasts looked-I even took a photo for a friend! Where had they been hiding?! Under a grandma bra that's where! Victoria's Secret delivers to OZ if you'd like the style of the bra?

I use the Anita brand of underwire nursing bras. Cost about $110 each but have lasted 3 pregnancies (3 x 12 months of breastfeeding). Well worth it. I am an E or F when breast feeding.

Try bras n things. I know, I know..... I hadn't even stepped into one of their stores since I was a teenager but they have a feeding bra with a removable underwire. I started using them when bub was about 4 months old and I have always left the wire in. I find that the wire is supportive but it kind of sits about 1-2cm below my boob. It has never interfered with my supply or caused any probs. I have size DD boobs and I LOVE these bras!
I regards to the other stuff..... I personally think that if you are feeling really conflicted you should just keep doing what you are doing now and reassess in a few weeks. If you want to stop then stop but if you are so unsure then I worry that you will regret your choice. Don't look at it as deciding to keep BF, just decide later.
I don't know if this will help or scare you but I found that at 4 weeks I was a bit of a mess hormonally. At 6 weeks I had a breakdown! Then at 4 and 6 months I had a tough time too. It was all definitely hormonal for me. So based on that experience I think you should reassess at about 5 or 8 weeks! Either way you are currently doing one of the most difficult things a person will ever do. Recovering from growing a human while looking after a little baby is bloody hard work!!!! Be kind to yourself and take a little time to feel proud of what you have accomplished so far. Xxx

We choose to feed her after lunch for the formula so she still went to bed and woke up with boob. As she got older and dropped her feeds it allowed me more freedom to go out during the day and leave her with dad or grandparents to feed.
We didn't start till she was about twelve weeks old and it was by far one of the worst things I've ever had to do at the time. I had endured two bouts of mastitis and cracked bleeding nipples a baby who wouldn't gain weight and immense pressure from doctors and felt like a failure.
But it allowed me a break and stopped me from hiding at home as feeding in public was near impossible.

Woah so much to look up thanks girls for every useful reply.
I'm in Perth. I'm not wearing good bras I think this may be a big problem.
