when i first started i didn't think i was going to make it.. it hurt sooo bad i wanted to cry. now, i love it! it's such a special experience and i love the bonding time we get to share together. just wondering if an moms out there feel the same? :)
I only got to breast feed for 2 days so it was hard when it came to an end so shortly. I really loved the bonding and it was hard allowing other people to feed him at first. Now I am just happy that he's healthy and happy and bond with him in other ways.
I absolutely loathed breastfeeding. It hurt, I got irrationally upset, as if my baby were some sort of leech. I started pumping, and even then I hated it. I had so little milk, I had to pump all the time. It felt like that was all I was doing. I know it's supposed to be the better option, but I hated it. I didn't feel like I was bonding at all, but the opposite. Nina may have liked it, but it was making me resent her. It was a relief to me when my doctor said that my supply was so low I should just switch to formula. I started to feel much better, not so angry, and I felt the bonding even though we were just feeding with formula and bottles. Nina didnt seem to mind the switch at all, so it was fine.
I agree, I love breastfeeding my daughter!
I totally agree with you! Once you get past the hard hump at the beginning it was a wonderful experience in my opinion :)
