This is my first post so here goes....
My beautiful little girl is almost 7 mo and we've had trouble the entire time. To start she had a shallow latch we were never able to correct so we had to use a shield indefinitely. At 2 mo she started having trouble eating, she screams all through feedings. We put her on reflux meds then I took out dairy, changed her reflux meds, took out wheat soy nuts fish, changed her reflux meds again. None of it worked and through out all this I had issues with supply and let down as well.
Recently we started her on a special (and very expensive) prescription formula and we stopped giving her all solids. She does seem to be doing better the past few days. In the meantime I've been pumping to keep up my supply in hopes that she may be able to breastfeed again but my pump broke! I glued it back together but it just broke again and with my let down issue manual pump doesn't do much.
It's so stressful I don't know if I can keep this up but I'm having a really hard time letting go. I feel like we've faced every challenge you can face when breastfeeding and we've pushed through it. I know if I continue there is a very real possibility I will end up with a freezer full of milk and a baby that can't have it so I don't know why this is so difficult for me. The thought of giving up just makes me want to cry.
