Re: Thinking about quitting and i feel like a failure
Ditto this. I've gone through my share of BFing difficulties, and I know that it's hard. If you're exhausted, frazzled, and at your wits' end, then you can't be the mother you want to be. I hope you can figure out a solution that improves her reflux and your restedness. Hugs!

Is there someone IRL that you can talk to, a LLL memeber or LC.
It really depends on how much you want to go through and put yourself through just to BF.
To be completely honest with you--if I was in your shoes and dealing with all that I would go to formula.I love breastfeeding and think that is best only if it works. If I had all those issues, having to eleminate everything from my diet and not getting any sleep I wouldn't do it. I don't think formula is evil and has it's place. It sounds to me like you are completley overwellemed.
