Man, I typed this big long comment and right before I hit send it disappeared! Let me try this again...

It's funny that you say that about breast feeding because I actually decided from the get-go that I am going to bottle feed. At first I felt really guilty about it, because I felt like I was being selfish, but my mom didn't breastfeed any of us and I think we all turned out okay! :)

Yesterday when we were at the hospital they asked if I was going to breast or bottle feed, so I guess now it's official. haha! Julie and Karen both tried it and had a hard time, so I figured I would just save both me and her the frustration and start on formula from the beginning. Casey, being the health nut that he is, of course wishes I would breastfeed, but as soon as he realized it's just not going to happen - he did his research and found the formula that satisfies him most. (We are going to be using Good Start.)

Don't feel bad if you have to switch to bottles. I know some people think it is complete blasphemy not to breast feed, but that's okay - because its not their baby!! Glad everything else is going so great....we can't wait!
