I am almost 23 weeks pregnant and starting to believe there really is a baby in there (although, still sort of in denial too!) and I have recently been thinking about feeding the baby after it arrives. Have many of you breastfed? I have to be honest and say that I have always thought that I wouldnt. I feel that the whole ttc journey was difficult enough and despite pregnancy being ok, I sort of feel that I have done enough? I know that sounds really selfish. Obviously, breastfeeding is the best for baby but I am worried about hypos, surely, if Mum isnt able to look after herself, what good will that be for baby...
I cant really believe that I'm even considering breastfeeding considering I have always said no to it but if I was to consider it could any of you share your experiences please? Did you manage ok? How did you cope with hypos etc.? I will be home alone with baby a lot because my husband will be at work. I just dont want to put myself or baby at risk of any harm.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
