So, my left side has been sore due to poor latching for the past few days. I tried only pumping on that side so that it will heal. Unfortunately, I developed clogged ducts which I had to let DS nurse on it so he can unclog the ducts. It didn't help the nipple to heal, needless to say and I developed raw/scabs. I went to pump this morning and got 4 oz of bloody milk Such a waste of precious milk! I was really trying to achieve my goal of nursing for a year. My son is 9 months old so I thought 3 more months wouldn't be so bad. I just feel like I don't want to try anymore. During these 9 months, I've had many issues with poor latch, sore nipples, clogged ducts, blisters, etc. Now, I am sore again and just so tired. I would still like to try to nurse while I am at home and use formula on the days he is at the babysitter's. I don't want to pump anymore. I feel a little bit sad, but I think I am ready. Just had to vent here.
