Do you have ppd? I hate to ask but sometimes women have it and don't really realize it.
I completely agree with this! I know you're BFing to be the best mom you can be, but--really!!!--if you reach out for help and are still feeling this way, maybe BFing isn't the healthiest choice for you? It's better to be emotionally present in the fullest way possible than to stick to some script or IDEA of how you thought things were going to go or how you think they are supposed to go. KWIM??

Sometimes we bully ourselves into thinking we have to do XY and Z to be the best mom we can be--but we get so caught up in the details that we forget that being well rested and happy makes you a WAY better mom than following some list we have in our heads.
