Re: The Best of Both Worlds: At Peace with Formula Feeding
I am so happy to read this. I am still breastfeeding my 5 month old, but he dropped at 4 months to the 2nd percentile for weight and a GI doctor listed him as FTT. So we are supplementing with formula. And when you factor in my PPD, it is SO hard. I am hysterical and panicky every time I give him a bottle. We walked through fire to build a supply early on, and at two months old I was having to weigh him before and after every feeding, and supplement what he was missing...it was terrible.
My therapist wants me to stop BFing completely for my sanity, but I have all of this guilt that my son will be sad and won't understand,etc. Breastfeeding issues are SO hard, especially when those around you make it seem so easy!
