i'm having a few issues and just feeling really discouraged.
i've been pumping for my daughter since she was born (5 weeks) d/t her inability to latch-on.
as of late, my let-down has been rather uncomfortable and the discomfort doesn't go away once my milk starts to flow. i've tried turning the suction down on my pump, but that doesn't really help.
i'm not sure if it's because of the pain i've been experiencing or what my problem is, but i feel really frustrated with pumping right now. i just feel like my life revolves around that breast pump. i know that i'm doing the right thing in pumping the milk for nora and i don't want to stop pumping, i guess i just need to vent. i try to stay positive about it, but sometimes i just get so sad that she isn't able to latch-on. i just feel like things would be a little easier if i could just breast-feed her instead of having to pump every 3-4 hours.
sorry for my rant. i just don't know how much longer i will be able to do this and i feel sad and guilty for feeling that way.
