Re: Is bf just for expense enough to continue?
You will bond with her! I hope you continue to bf, but even if you don't you will bond with her. I remember after my 3rd was born and I was very emotional the first few weeks and I wondered if I would bond with him. I just didn't have a rush of emotion. My dh just laughed and made some good points. One was that I had done this twice before and I had had a boy before so their wasn't that newness there. But you know now my aunt teases me that Mark is my favorite (and she may be right). Now I do believe that breastfeeding helps the bonding process. It certainly gets you to hold your baby close and I think the hormones play a role as well. But if you love your other children you will love this one too. Just give yourself a little time.
