Then again, it's not as if everything up to this point has been "natural." From an endocrinologic standpoint I'm a miracle of modern medicine, as artificial as they come. Levothroxine for my thyroid. Growth hormone (don't miss that one!) from fifth through eighth grade. Estrogen and progesterone. It's amazing and wonderful that we have these medications, and I am glad to have benefitted But I certainly can't say I ought to breastfeed because it's more "natural," or that I shouldn't breastfeed because it's not natural. I'll admit the idea of nursing when I didn't have a baby weirds me out.
So I don't know where I stand. I have plenty of time to figure this out, though. My best friend is urging me to breast feed but I don't know if all the hormones make sense when induced lactation doesn't usually produce enough milk to feed a baby. But maybe I should do it for the bonding?
Any experience either way, do let me know!
