Re: Struggling w/ BF, don't want to give
Greetings Risski121. I am sorry that breastfeeding has not been the peaceful blissful experience that we kid ourselves with.
Don't beat yourself up over giving your baby a bottle. feeding your hungry infant is always the right thing to do, and bottles and formula do have their purpose.
Have you ever spoken one on one to a La Leche league leader or to a IBCLC?
some mothers find that after feeding their baby with a bottle if they offer skin to skin contact with the breast and nipple and do not force the baby to nurse, just hang out and feel the warmth of moms skin, the baby eventually suckles.
