I feel bad but I think I'm going to switch to formula. I was exclusively pumping but now I just don't have the time to do it. my boyfriend is heading back to work. Jackson needs constant attention and to be held all the time I can't even set him down and Pump. I think we all.might be happier doing formula. I am only pumping 3 times a day now and even before that I couldn't keep up. Also I am suffering from PPD and am on Zoloft now
Also I just found out I have high cholesterol and need to be on medication but can't until I'm done plump king. I can't help but feel bad thou.

Try to remember that feeding is just one part of your entire mother child relationship. You need to find the balance that works for your family.

Don't feel bad at all. Pumping is so hard to keep up and most wouldn't have made it as far as you have. I stopped pumping for Jocelyn after only a month. You're still a great mom and you'll be able to take care of yourself a little better. Just remember, it's milk. It doesn't prove how much love you have.

You did great! I think it will be hard for the first couple of days and then once you realize that you are getting more rest and are better able to handle Jackson's needs when not tethered to the pump you'll feel much better.

I'm still upset that I can't breastfeed Rowan but now that he has the tube and is actually getting some food in him I'm very happy to feed him with the bottle. We smile and laugh at each other the whole time, just like with breastfeeding. I'm confident that it would be the same if I switched to formula.

I made that switch after only 2 weeks so you have done great in my opinion. It was an easy transition as far as Aubrey taking right to it.

I'm sorry you are struggling with the PPD. I'm glad you sought help & I hope the meds work. I'm struggling still myself but keeping the feelings in. Please PM me if you ever want to talk.
