Okay, I will try not to make this too long. My (first) son is 4 months old and I have been struggling with breastfeeding since he was born. It has hurt a lot off and on, he didn't eat well at first and lost a lot of weight - he ended up in the hospital with a uti and other issues when he was 6 weeks old. I pumped and fed him both breastmilk and formula in a bottle for a while to make sure he was getting enough... I have never been able to produce enough milk due to his slow start so I am always supplementing with formula. Now it's hurting a lot again and I think it might be a yeast infection. Anyways, I have been through a lot trying to breastfeed and I am just ready to quit now. I know breastfeeding is best and I would love to breastfeed longer but right now I'm stressing over it so much I think it would be better for both of us if I just weaned him.
The problem is, that my husband is totally against me weaning him right now. He wants the best for our son and knows breastmilk is the healthiest. I have tried talking to him about how I feel so many times it now feels like begging. I don't want to go behind his back and wean anyways because that doesn't seem respectful. I'm stressing out about this so much I don't know what to do! Any advice? Please? I would really appreciate it! Thanks in advance.
