In brief: See below:
If you're considering formula-feeding, do your research so that you can make an informed decision.
Then focus on nourishing and nurturing your baby — instead of feeling guilty or dwelling on other negative emotions. You might also share your feelings with your doctors/friends/family. Remember, parenting is an adventure that requires choices and compromises. What counts is doing the best you can.

In brief: Hard to say
This is one guilt trip you decide to take on your own.
I assume you BF for a time, and we know even a few weeks matter in the kids favor. The length of feeding varies with the needs of both baby and mother.Work or health demands often force a change, and at that point you just do what must be done.Be proud that you did for as long as you did and move past it.There are other battles to fight .
