I would prefer breast but I'm a no judger. If you can't or don't want to breast feed then whatever works best for you :)
With my first I was only able to breast feed to 4 months before becoming engorged and not able to breast feed anymore. This time around I'm hoping to at least make it to 6months if not a full year. But whatever happens happens!!

You have to ween the baby off. I am going to go until 12 months this time but I only went 9 months with my first. He got so sick for the 3 months I had him on formula. He threw up constantly and gained so much weight in such a small period.

Well if Ur not wanting to go for very long u can always ween him off yourself :) just like a bottle. U gotta ween him off sometime as well. And don't feel guilty either. But its definatly your choice!!

I always said I prefer breast . I was breastfeeding my baby and I started running low on milk because of stress and he broke my nipple so now I'm giving him formula

How can yo nipple break Connie0620

The skin can tear. Just like little cuts if the baby osnt latching correctly or if you don't break the latch. You have to put your pin key in the corner of the mouth before pulling away. There is creams that help healing and pain.

Ill be doing both

I plan on breast feeding. For the fact its free and so many healthy benefits not only for the baby but myself

I say breast, but I would NEVER bash someone who formula feeds. Both my husband and I were formula fed, and we both turned out fine. We chose breast originally for the benefits and then found out a few weeks after my son is due that we are going to be out of work, so it became a cost issue! lol
