    I think all mothers should at least consider it, but if they can't or choose not to they shouldn't be looked down on. I wasn't physically able to do it and the father of my kids was so angry with me for it.

    My first baby had to stay at the hospital for 6 months. I had to go home and try pump every 2 hours. After a month of not getting anything I gave up deciding I needed my sleep and less stress so I could be strong for my daughter.

    The lactation consultants definitely did everything they could to help me, unfortunately I couldn't do it. I gave it a month each time and then I gave up even though the lactation consultants insisted I keep trying.

    I agree. I wasn't able to with either of my children but I did try for over a month each time. The lactation consultants in the hospital tried everything to help me but it never worked. I wish I had been able to experience that.

    I didn't realize size had anything to do with it. Interesting.

    Good point. I never wanted to do it but once I had my babies I wanted to at least try give them the best nutrition that I could. It didn't work for me unfortunately.

    Good point. It really is best but I don't think there is a reason to look down on a woman who cant or wont. Formula is also full of nutrients. My kids both got formula and they are fine.
