I feel ready to give up. I love BFing, but it has been one hurdle after another. My LO is 7 mos and is at the 50% mark for weight and height.
My LO was sick 3 weeks ago and wouldn't nurse due to congestion. I was pumping and bottle feeding for a week. He started nursing again, but by then my supply was low and he wouldn't feed. I've increased my water intake, taking Fenugreek and Mother's Milk tea. I'm pumping every 3hrs at work and at home. I'm still offering the breast before I pump and any other time I can, but he nurses very few times and it's not a very strong suck when he does nurse.
I'm so frustrated and tired with offering the breast for 20-30 mins without any results, then having to pump, then bottle feed. LO was sick again over the weekend with a stomach bug which isn't helping anything.
My milk supply won't pick up. I get no indication from my LO that he wants to nurse. I've cried over this decision several times. I think I'm ready to give up.
