Hi Mommies! I'm Anna, Mommy to one month old 3 week old, Julian. I am new to this group and to live journal! I'm so glad there are so many other Mommies out there that don't think breastfeeding is very important. When I had Julian, the nurses at the hospital were really pushy even though I told them that I didn't want to breastfeed. He was a little sick at first and they said that the colustrom (sp?) was important, but I really didn't want to breastfeed -at all- and they kept pushing me! I was very annoyed, finally I agreed to pump some colustrom for him so they'd leave me alone but I didn't want him at my breast.

The reason I chose not to breastfeed is because I was returning back to work 4 days after his birth and I didn't want him to be too attached to me, and to tell you the truth, I didn't want to be too attached to him either so I feared that breastfeeding for a few days would screw up my plans of going straight back to work...I already miss him so much and I've barely let myself get very attached. Ya know?? My husband, Eddie and I decided during my pregnancy that the very best we could do for our child(ren) is give them two full time working parents. With the cost of things these days, it is really the only way to give them the important things in life!

I don't mean to go on and on...just wanted to let you know how I got to where I am. I can't wait to get to know all of you! Are there other working Mommies on here? What do you all do? Oh yeah, I'm a legal secretary.
