I have a wonderful 7 week old son who I love with all of my heart except when it comes to breast feeding. He is starting to get really fussy with each feeding and is nursing every 1 to 1 1/2 hours yet. I am feeling very resentful because I am not used to having someone be so "clingy/close" to me. I talked to my husband about my feelings and he made me feel so gulilty because I was putting my feelings first and not what is the best interest of our son. I was crying the whole time I was talking to him because in my opion he was just not understanding where I was coming from. I suggested that we supplement with formula mixed with bm. And he would not hear of that.
So my question is-if I were to exclusively pump, what is the correct way to do this? How often would I need pump and timing on it?
Please don't flame me for wanting to give my son formula. I just really hate the resentment that I am feeling towards him when it comes to feeding and I don't want to miss anymore of this precious time with my first child.
