Re: When to say enough
The only one who knows when to throw in the towel is you. Only you can balance your ability to keep on trying to succeed at breastfeeding against your sanity, ability to mother, etc. All I can say is that I've been there- staring over the edge and contemplating giving up because nursing and pumping was consuming ALL my time, and my emotional and physical energy- and I'm very glad that I didn't quit. Because breastfeeding did get easier for me. I was able to get rid of the formula and the bottles and the pump, and simply nurse. And I know that if I had given up, the grief and guilt would still be consuming me. But that's me, not you!
Can you fill us in some more on what's going on with breastfeeding? Clicking isn't necessarily abnormal...
