Don't let anyone ever tell you that bottle feeding is the easy way out. Breastfeeding has many challenges too but life would be much simpler if I could pop Freddy on the boob for a feed. Instead I spend up to four hours a day attached to my pump instead of spending quality time with my son, I have to make sure I take enough milk and bottles with me every time I go out, then feed my little guy and wash bottles and pump attachments at least once a day. And now I'm doing all of that on planes and in another country. Expressing isn't something easily done in public places either and it's bloody hard to find the right information about the best way to express. I'm so glad that I can keep my boy on breastmilk and grateful that my husband or a helper can give a feed if I need to take a rest or get something done but easy it ain't.
