My children are now in their 30's .I was only placed on Teardrop as I had a tonic -clonic 6weeks before my eldest was born Back in the 80's the care wasn't so good back then I was advised that the Tegretol may come through in the breast milk.I tried breast feeding for 3weeks then gave up through personal choice . I hated it All 3 of my children were on formula My last 2 were 10lb 9oz &10lb 10oz so I'd have been breast feeding all day to feed them . In those days they were weaned onto pureed foods at ,3 months.The norm is now 6 here .I have 2 grown up sons & a daughter ranging from 6'to 6'6"" in height Please don't feel a failure if you don't want to breast feed .It's your choice , nobody's business but yours. You'll be an amazing mum whatever you choose x
