When did you switch from breastfeeding to formula, if you did?
I’m TTC, and one of my biggest concerns is how my mental health will be affected by pregnancy and caring for an infant. I’m currently taking a couple medications, and I know there’s at least one I will have to stop when pregnant and breastfeeding. I am also at high risk for postnatal depression.
There is so much pressure to breastfeed. I may try it in the beginning, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to make it too long without going back to my medication. Is it beneficial to try, even for the first few months? The only reason I’m asking here and not in the breastfeeding groups is that I’m afraid overzealous moms will attack me for even considering formula feeding.
