I know that the benefits of breastfeeding should make it totally worth it and keep me from wanting to quit... but it's hard and time consuming and less convenient than formula and I'll admit, I've thought (not seriously yet) about giving up. Then, a friend of mine with a 4 month old dropped off dinner last night and told me she spends $240 a month on formula!! Holey Moley!! Now THERE is some serious motivation to stick with it!!!
