Hi all! I am 5 months pregnant with my first and I am having a problem feeling comfortable with the idea of breast feeding. I have 4 friends who all have babies who breast feed, and it doesn't bother me to see them do it. However, just thinking about doing it myself makes my skin crawl. It is making me crazy as I want my baby to have breast milk and I know that breast feeding helps us bond and keeps milk supply up. It has gotten to the point where I am considering exclusive pumping. I am researching everything I can about breast feeding and exclusive pumping in order to educate myself as much as possible. I have 4 months to get prepped!
Has anyone else had this issue? Anyone exclusive pumping because of this reason? I feel terrible and just keep hoping that once my son is born some magical thing will happen where I will lose this aversion.
Any tips or advice? Thank you in advance!
