From the first week PP til about 6wks PP I would become very depressed every time I breastfed. I would cry, I would find myself resenting my baby, and it just kept getting increasingly worse until I found myself trying to skip feedings or at least go as long as I could between them. I was fine all day except while nursing. I decided that is was in the best interest to both me and my baby to transition to bottle feeding. I was unable to pump, even after buying 3 different pumps and then going out of my way to rent hospital grade. The frustration made unsuccessful pumpings almost as bad as how I felt before, so I switched to formula. Now, at 8wks PP I am finding myself becoming depressed during feedings again, this time because I feel like a complete failure as a mom. I feel as though I was selfish and I should have just sucked it up and dealt with my depression. I am at such a loss! I just want to be happy with my baby! Help?
