While I was in the hospital my son was SCREAMING because he was so hungry.. and I gues she wasnt even getting colostrum or anything and he was a pretty big boy (8lbs 3oz) and it was all down hill from there. I don't think my milk EVER came in even though I would try and make him latch on a lot. but anyways.. He is 4 months old now (and a healthy 16.5 lbs) and on Similac Soy formula.. and I REGRET IT SO MUCH!!!! I just don't know how to get over this slump.

anyoe else ever feel this way?

You tried. That is more than a lot of people do. Don't blame yourself, blame the nurses that didn't offer more of a support and try to point you in the right direction. Little or no support is what I blame for MOST breastfeeding problems. Its nothing to be ashamed nor should you beat yourself up over it.
