With my son I only made it 3 months. My milk supply was more than enough for my son and everything was perfect until those late nights got to me and I started slipping up on making sure he was latching correctly. It got to the point where he would refuse to be patient and latch wide open and I would feel like crying from the pain. :[ My aunt had bought me a pump so I started pumping. I didn't notice any decrease in milk supply (not sure if this can effect it though) until I got an infection and got really sick for just one day. Weird right?
I felt better the next day and my milk had literally almost dried up. I pumped all the time, but hardly anything came out. After three days and seeing that my son was fine with formula, I gave up.
THIS time around I'd like to nurse until about 6 months if I can. Any suggestions or advice? I know it's hard, how do I keep myself going?
