I Regret QuittingI breastfed my daughter for the first 3 months. then i got really depressed and stopped eating so my milk supply got really low. the doc made me supplement with formula cuz she lost weight and then i was just selfish and stopped breastfeeding all together. shes almost 6 months old now and im trying again. pumping a lot. but its really hard with no support. my mom supports me but she lives 30 minutes away and i only see her once a week.
my boyfriend doesnt really care either way it seems like. cuz i tell him im starting again and all he says is well if u want to do it, then do it. im really depressed still cuz i stay home all day. my boyfriend is gone all day at work and i cant see anyone or talk to anyone really. ive had a problem with depression all my life basically. im taking fenugreek and eating oatmeal and pumping. its really hard to keep up with it just cuz i cant keep up a routine.
it would be really nice if i could have a friend on here to talk to about breastfeeding and giving me support for re lactating. i miss the bonding i had with my daughter and i know breast milk is best for her. she is my number one priority. i just need a little help and encouragement and im not afraid to admit it.
i was also thinking about ordering the Lact-Aid formula nursing tubing things so my daughter could help out too and i could bond with her. any advice or suggestions? ill appreciate all of ur help. please and thank u :)
