DS is 6 months, I had been thinking of putting him on formula while I was at work since I started back (January). It's been 3 months and it has become a huge pain in the butt to pump at work and then make sure that it doesn't spoil in the fridge or before I even get home.
I'm not sure why but I've been having feelings of just wanting to quit breast feeding all together. DS is getting more active and more into wanting to look around than eat that it's become frustrating just to feed him. We WILL be starting him on formula in these next few weeks slowly getting him used to the taste and feel of it by mixing it with the breast milk I have stored in the freezer. I just feel guilty for wanting to quit all together, like I'm a bad mom.
It also doesn't help that he has a milk sensitivity so I can't drink or eat dairy which has caused my milk sensitivity to come back as well. I just feel so weighed down with breast feeding now.

Do your best to look at baby and realize that introducing formula into his diet may cause pain and severe discomfort especially if he already has a milk sensitivity. I personally would choose to deal with my own discomfort then to ever put my child in a situation where pain is going to happen or is even a possibility. Baby should always come first especially when speaking about their main source of nutrition.
