I have known for a long time (since I was little) that I get uncomfortable around being naked or semi naked around almost anything- including myself. So it should come as no surprise that I wont be breastfeeding.
However, since my partner and I have announced we are having a baby, his family (including his father) have persistantly told me that I need to breastfeed. I have explained to them that I dont like that idea and that I will express into a bottle and feed her that way- as much effort as it is, I am willing to do that.
No matter what i say to them, to reassure them that the baby will get the breast milk, just not from my breasts, they will not stop harrassing me about it. I feel as though I dont owe them an explination, but they seem to not pay any attention to me.
Being a young mum to be (19); I do voice my opinion and is willing to tell them where to go, but for the sake my of fiance, i wont do that to him.
We have done everthing right for this child. She was planned, we bought a house, have everything set up, we have enough money to support her. And yet his family go on about me not breastfeeding..
What can i do or tell them that will make them stop. Its gets me down so much, I'm scared of going into a despression when it is meant to be a happy time. Labour doesnt scare me- the thought of them telling me how to raise the baby does...
