  • Forum Thread: Breastfeeding downer

    I started formula feeding in between breastfeeding once my daughter was one month old. She now seems to hate the breast and only seems satisfied with the bottle. Pumping is out of the question because it hurts so much and I barely pump anything. I like it that dad can feed her, and I'm fine with...

    I'm so sorry you have to make this choice. Mommies carry such a burden. I agree that you don't have to stop completely and honestly the weaning process would be better for both of you if you didn't. You'll ache a little during the day but nurse as soon as you go home and all throughout...

    I too, planned to exclusively breastfeed. It seemed like when I was pregnant, many older women criticized my decision to breastfeed (especially my MIL who believed the baby would starve!).

  • Forum Reply: Re: Despirately need help!

    It doesn't always work. My baby never wanted to latch on and I had so many people say that they can get him to latch and not one person could not even the professional. Some babies just don't latch.
  • Forum Thread: Breast feeding woes

    So in 2004 I had my son and tried to breast feed him, and the fatty stuff ( the stuff he really needed) wasn't comming out, just the clear liquid. He latched on just fine, and after a few days and pumping to help it out ( I wasn't cloged or anything) I gave up and went to formula feeding. I felt...
