Bonding is one of those pop-psychology terms that has been run into the ground. You will "bond" naturally with your baby no matter what. "Bonding" in humans is the normal falling in love with our children that we are instinctively programmed to do. We are not waterfowl - ducks bond at first sight - humans over time. Don't ever think for a minute that if you don't breastfeed, or nurse in the delivery room, or room in, or whatever faddish notion somebody tells you - that you somehow won't "bond" with your baby. You will, believe me - you can't escape it. You know you have the capacity to fall in love with another person - you fell in love with your baby's father. So you will most definitely fall in love with your new baby.
