I have NO idea!
Just wondering how you are planning to feed your impending arrival.

My October Space
I said a combo of all 3 as that's what I did with my boys. I would love to exclusively breastfeed but it's nice for a break and not feel so stressed being the sole provider. And I'll be going back to work probably after about 8 weeks so I'll pump when I'm back at work and probably at home too at times.
I nursed my first until she was 30 months..I nursed her through my entire second pregnancy and tandem nursed her for 5 months.
My second I nursed until about a month ago..she was about 13 months or so. I let her self wean too.
I'll let this baby nurse until their done too.
I nursed until just before dd turned 1, she self weaned at that point. I didn't respond well to the pump at all with her, so I'm not expecting to respond well this time either.

All 5 of mine have been formula fed and so will this little one. I have absolutely NO regrets about formula feeding.

I BF DD for 17 mo when we were both ready to let it end. I did pump some last time but I can count on my hands how many bottles she had.
This time I'm hoping to pump a bit more. I do enjoy the no washing bottles with the convience of BFing plus I always have food with me.
I had an absolutely horrific time with bf my last. Psychologically I was a complete mess. But I am gonna try again. It was so bad my 9yr old doesn't want me to try as she remembers how bad it was for me. So we will see but I would love to be able to. If for no other reason than cost and ease of no washing bottles etc lol
