Re: Quit or keep trying ?
The early weeks are frustrating, and I had a single full term latching newborn. I remember feeling so rejected and angry and sad at times when he would scream at the breast. My husbands support helped get me through all of it. And in your wife's situation, I can't even imagine how I would feel! So I totally understand the concerns over PND. Your support is wonderful, and so crucial in all of this!
I think that both of you being able to see the positives in all of this is great. Your wife is seeing progress with the pump and your babies are getting breast milk! That's fantastic! And there is still hope that they will latch! It is hard, but it can happen as they get a little bit bigger and stronger. You two are amazing for sticking it out and perservering. And having a loving and supportive husband makes all the difference in the world!
