It's been almost a year and though it got loads better after I stopped breastfeeding I guess mostly because I started getting sleep and it seemed like he finally loved me after I stopped hurting his tummy. I still have so much guilt about stopping because no one would believe me that it seemed to be hurting him and my family just yelled at me but I know what I saw every time I would nurse his tummy would just swell up,he'd scream after 15 minutes and try to kick me away he'd just pull his legs up and scream till he would get sick all over the place and have this offel green poop coming out of the diaper leg holes and his face just got more and more of those red splotches and I did everything with my diet that the county home nurse told me to when she visited but it just kept going on for months and we couldn't take him to his doctor because medicaid kept giving us hassles because my husband's social security number was in the system under somebody else's name. Everybody just keeps telling him I'm hurting him by feeding him the alumentum but he's not hurting and hasn't since he went on it so I don't understand how I could be hurting him.
Does the guilt and the depression ever just go away on its own or do I have to go get medication because I've been on meds before for depression and I didn't function very well on them?
