i had planned to breastfeed for 6 months, i only made it 3 weeks 😔breastfeeding is quite painful for me as baby boy was not getting a good latch but i kept at it, took in tips from lactation specialists to help, but at Robbies two week weight check he hadn’t gotten to birth weight yet so the dr told me to supplement with formula for a few weeks and to try and increase my supply, she told me to every 3 hours breastfeed first, then bottle feed 3oz of formula, then pump. so i was doing all of this but i got to feeling overwhelmed with it pretty fast. it felt like my entire day was spent on just feeding and pumping and washing bottles and pump components. i was also trying lactation cookies and a supplement increase supply but it didnt seem to be increasing. so i slowly phased out breastfeeding over about a week and im now on day 3 of formula only. idk why i feel so guilty, like i could’ve done more to keep breastfeeding. i have the pump and storage bags and breastfeeding bras and when i see those things i feel guilty. i know my child being fed is what’s important but im wondering why i feel guilt, like ive somehow failed my baby? its like there is so much pressure to breastfeed. the lactation specialist had told me my thyroid issue might cause a problem with supply but a friend of mine told me her sister with the same issue had an oversupply and that baby most likely has a tongue tie and the issue could be fixed. his dr didnt mention a tongue tie though. if i was talking to another mom in this position i would tell her not to feel bad so why do i feel bad? im totally wrestling with my feelings about this. was going to post this incognito but honestly this is me and this is real so why hide it, i think women feel too much shame over what we go thru, i mean, im literally shaming myself over quitting breastfeeding in a way here. anyone gone thru these same feelings?
