I gave birth to my fifth child a week ago. I have breastfed each one of my children and due to the fact that I stay home with them it was never necessary for them to have a bottle. My three older children are in different schools and our ride to pick them up in the afternoons is a little over two hours so I had all intentions of Emmi(baby 5) taking a bottle of expressed mild during the afternoons. Two different times I have expressed milk and my husband was going to feed her when she woke from her nap but I look at the bottle and burst into tears. I love feeding her and at this point I can't imagine missing even one feeding. She looks up at me with those big blue eyes while she is nursing and it is the best feeling imaginable. I do have time to feed her while I wait for my last child to get out of school so as long as we time it right she won't need a bottle but I was so determined before her birth to make it easier on myself. I'm not sure why this issue has affected me this way, could just be harmones and I change my mind ina couple of weeks. My husband is so supportive either way, of course he would love to feed his daughter but he takes care of her in every other way and he doesn't want to do anything to upset me.
