there's nothing wrong with switching to the bottle.
I did. When I went back to work, the stress over pumping and all that wasn't worth it. My babies needed me un-stressed. Feeding them formula helped that. When I was home, I nursed, and when I wasn't, it was formula. When they chose formula over the nursing... I let it happen. My babies were happy, healthy, and well adjusted with just the few months I nursed them. Sometimes, it honestly simply isn't worth breaking your back over the matter. Think of the end results. My DH has it figured out.
A happy mommy means a happy family.
ie: if you're stressed to the hilt... the family is suffering.

Thanks skyqueen. Thats makes me feel better. I know I felt bad when she didnt want me. In the morning, she still fusses, but it doesnt last long then she goes to the breast.

IA with skyqueen, Danie. Do what you can. If your DD decides she really wants the bottle/formula and it makes all of your lives easier, then don't stress yourself out over it. You've done everything possible to give her a great headstart in life by BFing as long as makes sense.
