    Why is it so hard, starting to get that useless feeling back again, i thought things would be better by now at 7 weeks (well they are a million times better just not as much better as i'd like). Pls tell me it gets better soon, i think this morning i almost sent my OH out for formula but after so much hard work getting it right the last few wks i don't want to undo the hard work and i just want so badly to at least get to 6 months exclusively bf. I just never thought it would be this difficult.

    At about 6 weeks I thought things were really getting better, then at 7 and 8 weeks they got hard again but it didnt last and things are better than ever now. It will get better, just keep going, your doing great!
