I felt like I failed my baby... I had such a horrible start to breastfeeding do to my milk taking almost a week to come in and DD had lost weight and pediatric said to give formula until my milk came in...
Once my milk came in we stopped formula... then when I returned to work I had yet a drop and started giving no more then 6oz
With my first son I also felt like I had failed. Now I am fine with it. The bottom line for me is I am able to give my son BM for the first year. A little formula here and there will not make that wonderful feat void.
At first, I felt so bad. I had planned my whole pregnancy to breastfeed, and then when I had trouble, it was just hard on me. Then, when I did get her to latch on, we breastfed only until she was about 5 months. It was hard work to get her latched on, and then when she stopped and I had to give formula again, I felt even worse. But, now I am okay with it. She has had so much breastmilk, and we are so close to one year, that I am proud of what she has had and is still getting.
