i breast fed my 1st child and 2 days in from doing it i panicked and baby wouldnt latch. i neednt of worried it was baby just not being hungry.
the midwife will show you how to feed and as soon as you give birth if you want to breast feed then they will put baby to your boob straight away for you.
If you do feed but are worried about being stuck in then bottle feed as well which is what i am planning on doing.
i dont want to breast feed as i did it before and felt that my body wasnt mine but then at least it is easier at night time as you dont have to worry about getting up to make bottles.
only do what you want to do and dont feel that you have to breast feed because they say its best. its what is best for you as well.
If you want another mum to keep in contact with then email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
i am 27 weeks so we are due pretty much the same time and we can count down together.
