Well my opinion is its hard work at times , its good for baby, both bonding wise, and nutritionally....you will be forever glad you did , no matter how long you breast feed for .Some moms manage to feed their babes for weeks some for months and beyond , doesn't matter  .First time is always a bit tougher as like anything its a new experience ..trust me its worth trying and if it doesnt wrok out tere are darn good formulas on the market today ..Let us know what you decide ...and congrats on the new baby ,,when is he/her due ?

hi i am 4 months now with a first kids (girl). its really difficult to learn baby breast feed for first time mom.
Try to avoid bottle feed in starting(till 3 months if baby is on breast feed) and try to offer baby  breast nipple asap from first day.
if baby refuses, express milk  in a bowl and feed with a spoon.
the baby who are on breast feed sleeps almost 18-20 hrs in a day in first months so it is big advantage for tired mothers to get some time to relax.
  good luck... hoping for a girl...
