What's the biggest thing you have had to overcome in your breastfeeding/supplementing journey?

I had to overcome the idea that formula was the enemy. I still have friends that flinch at the idea of giving their babies a drop of formula. My 2yr old has never been sick and is healthy. I would like to say that is from breastmilk, but the formula he also consumed did nothing to alter his development. Just not worth the battle with them though.

I have also had to overcome that. It was hard for me at first to give her formula, but it's easier now. I know I am doing what I feel is best for my child.

I am still trying to overcome the guilt of not being able to supply my babe with 100% breastmilk its like my body has failed her... no matter how much nursing pumping herbs water calories and so I try I still can't provide her with enough to satisfy her...

I still don't enough giving her formula but its better then a cranky hungry baby... 98% of my daughters food is breastmilk.. also my daughter has yet to be sick and is meeting all her goals and then some...

I also have to overcome the other looks I get from women when I buy a can of formula... even though a can of formula last me just over a month I still get the stink eye looks from other women..

I feel like I have been given those looks too. I have done everything I feel is possible to give her 100% breastmilk, which was my goal. And, even though I am not able to do that, I am doing the best that I can and I am okay with that.
