this is the third (maybe forth) night in a row that Tristan has woken up at about this time trying to get out his gassy green slime bowel movements. I've seen tiny specs of blood in then twice. ( which sounds like milk intolerance).he won't even nurse tonight. Idon't know if it's the gas or he's just refusing. then it looks like I have mastitis for the second time in two weeks and I feel horrible.. I hate that he feels horrible. I guess it just isn't cut out for everyone, I'm glad we got the first month

It could also be a hind milk/fore milk issue. I am so sorry you have mastitis again. You are a great mom no matter how you feed your baby. Hang in there Hun.

Sorry you are having a tough time. I hear mastitis is awful. Don't stress yourself about BFing. You gave it a great shot!

Don't feel bad. I am about done too. The thrush destroyed my nipples and because I have a compromised immune system, I had to pump instead of breastfeed while we both had to be on medication and she got used to the bottle and barely even wants the breast anymore and I feel like a cow hooked up to a milk machine all the time.

I was feeling really guilty, but decided it wasn't worth my sanity.

I messaged the local LLL on Facebook and she told me to try a technique for a couple of days to see if it helps anything. I'm going to try it and see what happens, if it doesn't make a difference I will reconsider switching to formula. thanks everyone.
