With my son I tried and failed. The pain was unbearable, bleeding nipples, he couldn't latch on properly, milk didn't come through, couldn't express (was lucky if I got 2oz). It was miserable and I had to cave and formula feed. He took to the bottle straight away which made me relieved that he was finally feeding properly but very sad that he didn't take to my breast. I keep telling myself all I can do is my best and try. Not to stress and get depressed over it again. But I'm struggling. I'm terrified. Terrified of the pain, sore nipples, learning to latch baby on and the mass of questions I have about it. Why can't something that should be so natural, be easy? Has anyone failed with the first but been successful second time round? I could use some positive stories and tips.
