I don't have any advice, really. I just want to say that it sounds like you've gone through a lot to get to where you are now, and you sound like a loving mom. You are doing what you need to do to feed your baby, and that's wonderful. Ebf, supplementing, and/or feeding formula is your decision and is based on what you feel is best for you and your child. You have gone through a lot, and in reading this forum, I see lots of these issues. You aren't alone, and it also seems to me that every baby is different, so what your son did doesn't necessarily apply to your daughter unfortunately.
That said, if you want to continue ebf, try day by day, maybe even hour by hour. If you have to supplement, you have to supplement. You could always give her the freezer stash first-good for you for thinking ahead!-then formula if you want.Or you could just do formula. I trust you know best for your child.
Regardless if you are depressed or not, it helps to have support and things you can do for yourself. Do you have a group you can attend? A friend who can visit or call? Family you can talk with? Some days you need a hug or a friendly face. Or, just a chance to get out in the sunshine.
