Feel in a bit of a quandry and was wondering what everyone else would do. Before our Daughter Kaitlyn arrived I wanted to exclusively breastfeed if I could sa I failed with our first child because she would not latch on and had no interest in the breast whatsoever. Kaitlyn had 2 good breastfeeds in the hospital after she was born but for a number of different practicality reasons we decided to bottlefeed when we came home. The main reasons were me having to be on call 24 hrs a day (Not easy with a nearly 2 yr old as well.), wanting ste to be involved, being worried about Ash's reaction and potential jealousy and also not wanting to have the stress of switching to bottles when I go back to work in May as I'll have no way of breastfeeding at work (I'm a nursery nurse). I was happy with K having had 2 good feeds from me of the first milk.
But..she's now 6 days old and I'm still leaking milk, especially when she cries.. and I'm wondering whether to switch back to breastfeeding as I feel a tad guilty for stressing so much about being able to breastfeed her in the first place.. and then deciding against it after I'd actually managed it?
What would you do in my situation?
