Re: Could use some encouragement
You said it yourself, mama: success could be right around the corner! Personally, I think that success has already arrived for you. Your baby does latch on and does nurse, and you have milk, so even if you're struggling with bottles and SNS right now you are way ahead of a mom whose baby won't latch, or a mom whose supply has vanished.
If you're not ready to give up, don't give up. That's the ONLY thing that separates successful breastfeeders from those who "fail". Sometimes a mom has to redefine success for herself, but that is so not a big deal in the grand scheme of things. You can do this, and you ARE DOING IT!!!!
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
