7. It Might Not Be the Right Choice for You

Yes, doctors encourage breastfeeding, but that doesn’t guarantee that it’s right for you. My first son weaned himself once he started eating jarred food, my second had nutrition issues and had to eat a special kind of formula, but my third might still be nursing if I hadn’t weaned him just after his first birthday. Every baby’s needs are different so if breastfeeding doesn’t work out for you, it’s fine to make the switch to formula without guilt.
