I’m all for breastfeeding on demand but don’t you just feel like a sodding milk machine some days? ?????!!
I know it’s good for baby but the sore, raw nipples and tender boobs just put me right off!!! And the feeding so often just gets to me and I just want to give up!
As it is my little boy does take a bottle and formula so I occasionally get a break, tying to do a late night bottle to get him to sleep abit longer at night, it extends sleep by about an hour. (Still doesn’t feel long enough ). And yes I know a lot of people frown upon combination feeding but I don’t care,he’s got to get used to it at some point and it makes it easier if other people can feed him. Also means he’s not attached to me 24/7 and will go to other people!
Doesn’t help things when he poo explodes over me…..staining my favourite pair of prepregnacy jeans…..
Oh well milk machine it is then
