My son is 15 days old and I have been breast feeding exclusively but I ahve been pumping for the most part and bottle feeding so my spouse can help me out at night and when I just need a minute. Seems to be working ok he will still nurse and no nipple confusion but he's not relieving my breasts. They still feel full when I let him nurse and they get so sore. Any suggestions? I want to keep giving him breast milk at least while I am home on maternity leave.
Also I was taking anti depressants and found out in the maternity ward I could no longer take wellbutrin xl if I was going to breast feed so I am not sure what to blame the exhaustion on. I realize it's some what normal but am faced with a hard choice as the medication greatly helped me. I want to be able to breast feed obviously for health reasons, cost and most of all I am sooo uncomfortable about my weight. ????
