Good Morning Ladies,
I'm a FTM of a beautiful 3 week old little girl. I've been doing my very best trying to breastfeed but I need some support. I'm physically and emotionally exhausted and I seem so out of touch with my body and boobs!
Baby girl does a decent job of latching when I'm not too full. I try to hand express some before each feeding to make it easier for her. Sometimes though she fights me and seems so irritated.
We do supplement formula on occasion and she has no problem going back and forth between the two. (bottle wise).
I'm scared to go all over to formula and I really want to be the rockstar mom who is able to pump and breastfeed her baby. I'm just at this wall and I need help. Please let me know of any tips or tricks. I'm going back to work when she's two months old so we will be transitioning to bottle in a couple weeks.
I have a pump and I've tried to using it, but that seems just as frustrating.......
