I am so proud of you.
You are trying.
You are doing the right thing.
I am not one of those crazy breastfeeding mommas that have done it just everywhere and never let my child have a bottle. No way.
I had big boys 9 lbs each big eaters (at least when they were babies)
Derek was more attached to the breast and had a hard time taking a bottle than Joseph. Joseph just wanted/wants to eat he doesn't care what, how or when.
It's hard. It's you and only you. Your body is recovering from giving birth and your tired and worn out and you've been fat and pregnant for 9 months and now THIS. Just let daddy or grandma feed the kid. But they need you. There is a reason your body produces milk you know. Canned formula was INVENTED not created.
I am so proud of you. Keep it up. Call me I'll help.
BIG HUGS and LOTS OF LOVE to
Shauna and Jake
Jenn and Jacob.
