How have you dealt with breastfeeding grief? I know there are a lot of us who have had to deal with grief issues and breastfeeding. What's your best advice for coping? How are you personally dealing with things?

Me, I have my good days and I have my bad ones. For me I kind of reached a breaking point where I realized I needed to get over myself and think of my daughter first. I am bfing as much as possible and I the fact that she is still nursing well and still treasures her bfing time helps a lot.

I think because I wasn't able to breastfeed my eldest properly at all (and definitely felt grief for being unable to BF her) I am so grateful of being able to BF Natasha and Sam as much as I do/have done that I haven't felt grief about not EBF.

I was so terrified that I wouldn't be able to breastfeed Sam at all after what happened in hospital (the birth story link in my siggy explains what happened, I am making a formal complaint this week now Christmas is out of the way) and I would miss out on the bond I developed breastfeeding Natasha, so I think I am even more grateful for what I am able to provide him with now.
