I just want to know why you all decided to bottlefeed and breastfeed opposed to one or the other.
I am due with my second child on Dec. 1 and I am choosing to do both options because I know breastfeeding is the healthiest option but I also have always wanted to try it with my first child but I was very young and listened to everyone else except myself. I also chose to bottlefeed along with it because I do not want the child to get too attached to my breast to where he/she cannot be with others. I'm not sure if both will work since I havent reached that obstacle yet but thats what I plan to do. I havent decided if I will pump or just try breast milk at certain times of the day and formula the other times but I know that at this moment I plan to do both.
