In the hospital, I was away from my baby for 2 days and he had to have formula while in I was ICU but the lactation consultants were persistent. They brought me bottles and my pump and checked in with me EVERY day to make sure that things were going well. If it weren't for both of them, there were times when I would have given up.
I couldn't agree with this more - DH gives me all the credit for how long I BF Savannah, but I honestly give him a LOT of the my lowest, most exhausted moments especially when I was sick and I wanted to give up, he'd give me a pep talk about what a great job I was doing and he helped me every way he could, right down to packing my pumping bag every morning
