Re: Deciding not to breast feed in advancei
It's actually very common. Either they don't want to ruin their breasts, or they can't stand the thought of it. Some don't want to go through the whole process if they are just going to go back to work soon. (that's the reason I hear the most)
The moms who do it and go back to work find it very hard. Some deal with it, some think it's too hard. It probably depends on your job or workplace too. The ones who can make it work have jobs where it's just easier. It's harder for teachers to pump, but it's not so bad if you work in an office.
I nursed, mostly because I couldn't afford formula. (that's why I cloth diapered too)
