Does anyone else hate breastfeeding?

I exclusively breast feed since it's the healthier option, however I hate it! It stresses me out. I hate not being able to see how much my daughter eats. I don't like having to cover up when in public. I don't like the feeling of breastfeeding. It's just not enjoyable for me. I will continue to breastfeed, but just want to know if I'm the only one who feels like this. I've given her a bottle of expressed milk a few times and it was so wonderful.

Answer on Does anyone else hate breastfeeding?

I really understand how you feel, I don't like it either. I have three children, breastfed one and formula fed two and I don't care what anyone says formula/bottle feeding is so much more convenient then breastfeeding. I could just leave my baby with my husband and go out for a couple hours without having to worry about pumping or leaving enough milk. Cover ups are a struggle with a wiggly baby, and going without a cover up makes me feel uncomfortable. So, no you're not the only one who feels like this. It took all the willpower in me to not quit breastfeeding!
