Re: The Best of Both Worlds: At Peace with Formula Feeding
It's been really reassuring to read all of these posts. I entirely planned to breast feed exclusively and let my baby decide when to wean, and he never wanted to nurse from the start. I got a bad guilt trip about it at the hospital, and not very good help from the LC there. I kept trying to breast feed, and then kept trying to pump, though I usually only get an ounce at a time. I've tried supplements and domperidone but I can't get enough from pumping to make it work and fighting to get him to nurse seems to be more for my benefit than his. I am trying to let it go and be glad he's healthy and growing, but it's really hard.
