I am exclusivly breastfeeding and I love it! Infact i know i will be in tears the day i have to stop. My son is 3 months old and i was wondering when the best time to introduce a bottle is (breastmilk)I dont want to do it too soon in fear he will not want the breast and not too late he will not take to it.. I was planning on breastfeeding till 10 months and will be working from home. Is 10 months ok!?

:) I was too, but it ended up not being as bad as I thought. I found that with my daughter she would start to bite when she was getting full. So I would just end the feeding. It hurts, but it was not as painful as I had imagined. She also got the clue that if she wanted to bite then she would be done eating.

You should be able to do the bottle now and be fine. As far as how long to breastfeed.....10 months is great, but if you have nursed for 10 months why not just continue 2 more months. At 12 months baby can be put on cow's milk.....this way you don't need to buy formula.
