Re: Anybody ever feel guilty about not BF?

Yes! With dd1 I worked so hard to nurse. She was tongue tied and I didn't know it till I saw an lc because my nipples were cracked and bleeding. I fed every two hours and pumped. I was on Reglan, fenugreek, more milk plus, and goat's rue. It was taking a toll on my body and I could only pump less than two ounces. You would think, I would be producing more, but once I stopped Reglan I was dry!

I am trying to nurse ds1 and it has been a month. I had to supplement because he wasn't
gaining weight. I took fenugreek, blessed thistle, and liquid form of different herbs and only pumping one ounce! I am going back to work in two weeks and feel a little guilty, but need to come to a point about what is best for me and our family.
