Ladies I am considering giving up on trying to relactate. My DS is so high needs and he cries all the time. I am lucky if I get to pump two or 3 times during the day because he doesnt take naps. Or if he does nap, it's for 30 min and by the time I'm set up with my snack and drink and set up to pump, he's screaming again. I just can't find the time to fit it into my day unless I let him scream his head off for 20 min 8 times a day. And I can't find it in my heart to just let him scream while I'm pumping. For one, I can't relax when he's screaming while I pump. And every day from 4pm on til he goes to bed is nothing but a screamfest! And he already on the anti-colic formula so I don't know what to do.
I am really discouraged and just about done trying. I mean, how far am I really going to get if I can only pump a handful of times a day? Not far at all. I cluster pump at night but it's not making a difference and I just end up really sore from pumping for 30 min every hour.
I feel like such a failure. I didn't even give it much of a try.. I mean, I did but I can't just let him cry. I can't do it.
Thanks for listening to my rant.
