I always intend to breastfeed, but we had latching issues (and very little support) when my eldest was born in 97, that I ended up switching to bottles. With my daughter, we started off great, but then there was a death in the family a week after she was born, and I left her behind with her father for three days. The screwy schedule messed with my pumping schedule, and we could never get back on track and she was permanently on the bottle.
This time around, I plan on trying again (third times the charm?) with the added challenge that I'll be going back to work. Thankfully, my work environment will allow me to pump, and I don't anticipate any other issues getting in the way. So we'll see how it goes!
Do you plan on breastfeeding? Or formula? Or both? What's worked for you in the past?
