Ame, my first DS was just the opposite. He'd SCREAM when I tried to nurse. I went to lactation consultants and classes and he hated every minute. I'd cry at night because he would try to eat and cry at the same time. After 5 weeks, I gave up and pumped and gave it to him in the bottle for another 2 mos until my milk went out. He was SO much happier.

Melissa is right. Don't feel guilty - you have to do what is best for you and your baby.


Colt is so different - He's a great nurser and won't take the bottle unless he's starving. I've been pumping and freezing every day and good thing too. On Monday I had a horrible migraine and had to take a migraine abortive, which is a class D med. I had to pump my milk and discard it. Colt had to take thawed breastmilk in a bottle for 24 hours. It was SO hard on him and me.
We won't start solids until he's 6 mos.
