thanks, it's good to hear that. somehow I've gotten it into my head that he won't be as healthy or smart as he could have been since I didn't breastfeed him.

Neither my DH nor myself were breastfed and we have both turned out very well!

Re: Can't get over my guilt

I have those kinds of feelings about other aspects of parenting--like why did/didn't I do X? I think doing something as important as raising children is bound to result in feelings of guilt sometimes, even though we are all trying to do the best we can in each particular situation. But none of us are perfect and our children are resilient and will be ok.
