I chose formula because I had no interest in breastfeeding once my daughter, Kylie was born. She was a preemie and I only got to hold her for a quick minute before she was taken to the NICU to be evaluated. She was nearly perfectly healthy. All she had was a feeding problem. I knew that bottle feeding would be easier and I didn't want to make her struggle with breastfeeding if I didn't need to...and I have a poor diet so she would have breastmilk full of the nutrients from chips, soda and pizza =] After trying to breastfeed when Kylie came home from the hospital, I decided that it was just too time consuming and I wanted to spend my maternity leave happy and being active with my baby and not stressing over producing enough milk for her. I also hated pumping.lol
Why did you decide to use formula?
