Ditto Sapo's post. You have to do what you think is best, at the time. I think you have the right attitude in going natural, esp. if you don't have the pit. But don't beat yourself up afterwards if you change your mind. You are a human being, like the rest of us.
Last time I tried incredibly hard to BF. I did every single thing I could. But the severe trauma and every single problem afterwards, I mean every single thing that could have gone wrong did, in a 21 day period. My emotional sanity and my relationship with my husband and my son suffered terribly, and frankly BF wasn't worth that. In retrospect, I should have given up earlier, not tried harder. Then again, hindsight is always 20/20.
