I tried and failed with both my girls. I gave it a lot of effort but it just didn't work out. The first time around we figured out later that my DD had a neck problem that made it uncomfortable for her to nurse. She went on to have major developmental delays but I never attributed it to the fact that she wasn't breast fed. this time around started out great but babe wanted to be on me 24/7 and it was ruining the dynamics of our house. DD#1 wasn't getting any attention. I was frazzled. Then it turned out that DD#2 had major gas issues with anything milk based so now we're all happy that she's on Soy formula (people tell me that is the worst thing to have her on, but I feel sane today and she giggles a lot so it couldn't be THAT bad) Thanks for letting me vent my experience. I don't regret my decision at all.

I've been wanting to blog about this for a long time. But it's so controversial I'm afraid.

I am breastfeeding and I'm so glad I am but man it was the WORST in the first four or five weeks. I totally would have given up if I didn't have the most stubborn and persuasive husband in the world. He really wanted me to breastfeed and he was almost mean about it. I spent many days in tears.

Now it's easy and I love it because I'm lazy and I love how I can just whip out the boob and solve the world's problems. But I sure wish I could have known what I know now in those early days.

I was a bit apprehensive to post about this because as you said it's such a controversial topic and so many people have such strong opinions on it one way or the other. There is no question that breastfeeding is the best for your baby and I admire people that stuck with it.
