Today is the day - I made it to one month


I want to cry. Everyday has been a struggle. I have worried, been anxious, almost given up, have given formula, felt inadequate, wanted to quit, hated it, and finally gave in.

Baby has been breast fed for 1 month today! I did supplement at the beginning with formula for three days after every feed. For me that really did help. I'm not one of these moms that thinks baby should hang off your nipple 24 hours a day to have a proper breast feed. There are supports out there like formula, nipple shields, creams, and pumps that can all help. I am proof that using these devises and help doesn't ruin supply or make breast feeding harder, it helped my anxiety my worry and my supply. They aren't for everyone and I didn't use them all or anything for very long but I was grateful it was there.

Anyways. I never thought I'd see this day. It's still rally hard and I still worry so much and I'm still really confused but god damned I made it.

Well done on your achievement. I am close to 3 months and also had a very rocky start.

Congratulations!!!!

I remember that day like it was yesterday also (8 months later almost to the day). I wanted to jump for joy and scream victory, but all the while my hubby was looking on as if I was completely mad. (Men just don't understand these things, which is why I'm glad I have ladies like yourselves to cheer for me)

Good Job!
