Hi everyone... I have a 1.5 yo who was not breastfed because it was too hard on me and I didn't have the support I needed. I had to go back to work after 6 weeks and that was killing me (I only work 2 days now, thank goodness) and the stress of having difficulty breastfeeding almost threw me over the edge so I decided my mental stability would be better than continuing to bf. I know I was not educated enough at the time which is not an excuse but really I didn't know it would be so difficult. I am looking to get pregnant again and I feel intimidated by bf and feel like an imperfect mother to my son since I bottle fed him. How do I prepare myself beforehand for the next baby... and how do I lose the guilt of not bf my son. Will he hold this against me if I bf his sibling and not him? Thanks so much. I have been holding this in for so long.
