I Regret Quitting

I 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 :)
