When I was two months in and my daughter was screaming and I was crying I was like, “Is this bonding!?” We were both so happy when I switched to the bottle. My third one? Breastfeeding was awesome. I loved it. Every child, every mom is different. Do what is best for YOU and YOUR child!

I too felt like I missed a lot with my daughter because unfortunately I stuck with it for a little too longer. I think I lost every shred of sanity I had. Hope you will continue to read and share with us.

Breast feeding is something that I really wanted to do, and was very excited about. My experience was a nightmare, despite seeking the help of my wonderful lactation consultants and our pediatrician. I tried for 3 weeks, pumping around the clock, taking supplements, using a supplemental nursing system, and fighting everything within me telling me that I was a bad person because I wasn’t making enough milk to feed my baby. I had to tell my mother in law to tell people to stop asking me about breast feeding because I was about to have a nervous breakdown. I felt like I really missed out on those first 3 weeks with my baby, and I can’t get them back. My baby and I are much happier now, and 10 months later I can say that I am happy with my choice to stop!

Its so true that often we are told what the ‘right’ thing to do is. We really need to just reflect and figure out what is best for us and our families. I’m glad you were able to find what worked best for you.

It comes with so much joy and happiness but we often don’t talk about the struggles that accompany them.

I did breastfeed my oldest daughter. I did it only because I thought it was the “right” thing to do. Not because I really wanted to. It was a painful time, if you ask me. I try to stick with it for a couple of weeks, but finally surrendered and was all too happy to give her a bottle. Second child, the nurse asked, “Do you want to breastfeed her?” My response, “Can I EAT first?” After 16 hours of labor, with no epidural, I wasn’t in the greatest mood. I breastfed her once, gave her the bottle next, and never looked back. However, my hats off to those ladies that have had a wonder experience with breastfeeding. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Make It or Fix It Yourself. Following you….

Many people around me have kids and I didn’t realize how frustrating this can be for them.
