I do want to. My potential, looming obstacle will be depression. We'll just have to take it one day at a time. I'll try to stay off my soap box, but I feel like society projects an image of breastfeeding as being "easy" for everyone. Not only is that not realistic (nothing is the same for everyone), it isn't fair. I think it sets up the moms who can't/don't want to to feel like failures, when in truth it isn't always the right thing for every child and mother.

And she started growing more on formula.
There is nothing wrong with that at all!
