For anyone reading
Welcome to Mothering. I'm sure you will find lots of helpful information and advice in the forums. I am also on the fence about vaccinating and I also feel very strongly that every woman should at least try breastfeeding and that those who say they couldn't, for the MOST part, probably were misinformed, uneducated, and unsupported. I care because if I can spread the right information and help just one new or expectant mom give her baby the most precious of gifts then I have done something wonderful with my life. I probably sound crazy but if someone would have support and informed/educated me when I had my first and second child, things would have been so much easier. Yes, I breastfed them but I so wanted my first to take a bottle (he refused) and thought formula was somehow better than breast milk and that is why I supplemented so much with my second and weaned him from the breast at just 9 months. When I had to witness him with croup, ear infections, and on a nebulizer time after time I did some research and vowed to have a no option attitude towards breastfeeding. I went on to EBF my third and fourth and am currently still breastfeeding my fourth who is 10 months old.
