My baby & I never got the hang of breastfeed (preemie & 2 weeks in NICU), but three times in the last few days she has grasped at my clothes and just popped right on my breast to feed. I had "somewhat" come to terms with terminating pumping next Monday, after her she gets her shots. I had to go back to work and I am really having a tough time scheduling time to pump and feel like I'm missing out on my baby b/c I'm tethered to the pump so much. Plus my husband really wants some sleep at night.
BUT, now that she is showing some interest I'm more hesitant to stop, but what really are the chances that at 7 weeks she'll catch on to BF? And, I really feel bad about not being able to provide BM which I know is best and hate giving up just b/c its hard & not fitting in my schedule.
I don't know if anyone can help, but just needed to get what I'm feeling out there. Both my mom & husband think I should just stop pumping.
Thanks for "listening"
