My baby wasnt latching on right.. I gave it my best shot, tried for several weeks, and by that point I was in so much pain even when she wasnt feeding that I felt it would be in her best interest and mine to just switch to formula. Since she wasnt latching on right, I wasnt sure how much she was eating, and I was concerned she wasn't getting enough. Breastfeeding is definitely beneficial to the baby, but not if the baby isn't eating as much as he/she is supposed to.
--Dont let people bring you down for your reasons or choice to stop breastfeeding. You know whats best for your baby, and you did what suited your situation.--
