i was determined to breast feed too and i am still going almost a year on! but i know some ladies who just couldnt due to various reason. Everyone is different so i would just see how it goes! for me the first 2-3 months were the hardest, as was so sore and chapped at beginning (my lb was toungue tied though).
i never really expressed but what i will say is try and get your little one on a bottle asap (expressed milk or formula Whatever you prefer) just so their use to the bottle As we struggled with my lb to take the bottle. He will now have a sippy cup!
my personal experience with breast feeding has been great and such a beautiful experience but hard and tiring too. And i think if i have another baby i would try and part feed breast and bottle but see how you go Honestly follow your heart and how your baby is!
You will be great i bet! 😊
