Breast-fed for as long as I could (about 2 months), but began having problems producing milk (with feedings lasting up to 3 hours, and less than an oz. of milk after pumping for an hour, baby girl was always hungry), so I switched to formula.


I never breast fed with my oldest so when I found out I was pregnant with my second I wanted to switch things up and try it. I know its better for babies and a natural bonding experience. Unfortunately after I gave birth I found out that even though my breast were swollen and leaking milk I wasn't actually producing enough milk in one side and wasn't producing milk at all in the other. I was so upset and distraught at first because it was something I had really set my mind on doing and I thought what kind of mom can't feed her own baby. Then I started talking to other moms I knew and it turns out its a more common problem among women than I thought it was.
