    It has come the time to bid you all goodbye. :cry:

    In the past two weeks, I have had an infection in my breast, my nipples are raw and have open sores on them, my breasts are sore (OUCH), and even though I pump every two hours I still only get 2 ounces (and that's on a really good pumping!) each time.

    It's been a rough 2 months, and I just can't take it anymore. Hopefully with my next LO I will have more luck!

    :hugs::hugs::hugs:

    Til then, bye ladies!

    Ouch!!!! Ouch!!!! Blessings to you and your lovely babe.

    Sometimes it's really, really hard to resolve BF issues. I totally understand how a mum can get to the point of saying "enough". And I respect that. Blessings.

    See you in bc!!! :) My experience hasn't scared me away, I'll be back! Hopefully I won't have another early delivery and LO#2 will be more interested IN boobie feeding. My poor preemie just was so confused and we had to fight so hard for her to nurse.

    Thank you both. I don't regret doing it. I just wish I could have done a little better. Oh well. I'm working on not blaming myself for this one. An infection is nothing I could prevent....right?

    Like I said though, I don't regret bf'ing, and I will try again when I have my next LO.

    I am sure a lot of people would have given up long ago. You have done a great job for your LO and I am sure the milk you have given her has given her an amazing start. You should be proud that you have done so well for her.
