    Ffion hasnt had booby in 4 days.. her choice.. and now i have hardly any milk left.

    it suddenly hit me this morning... im not breastfeeding anymore. i really wanted it to end but im so upset now it is actually over.

    I've seen lots of posts from you about trying and trying with the breastfeeding so hopefully you can take comfort from knowing you did your best, and now you can get bottle feeding to work for u ffion and the rest of the family xo

    Don't think you are a failure!!! Sometimes it just doesn't work out!! Your LO will bond with you even using a bottle! She knows who her mummy is!! :)

    Try not to worry about it! The important thing is she's getting the food and nourishment and you are still the one providing it!

    OMG Tezzy stop! You are not a failure! You sound like a wonderful mama. Don't let this get you down. I know from experience there's lots more things that we as parents just have to say no to, for the greater good of the family. You did your best and Ffion got the best from you! Do not feel like a failure. You are a Super Mum!
