I have never posted anything before in a discussion board so please bear with me :) First, I am a brand new, first time mom. I have never been much of a fan of little babies bc they are so small, fragile etc. I have always wanted children though and have a 2 1/2 week old little angel girl and am constantly anxious. I have the MOST amazing husband who helps with everything while he is not at work, an equally amazing mom who helps me out during the day and still have such anxiety. I worry about if I can do this, if I am being a good mom, if she is too hot/cold, etc. I cry a lot bc I am happy or scared and am not normally a crier. The crying is MUCH better than when I first got home but still persists. Does anyone else feel like this?
Second, I had planned on breastfeeding but ran into some diffculty with her latching and being able to obtain enough milk so am pumping and bottle feeding her the breast milk. We are also trying out formula once a day in case something would happen to my milk. Does anyone else do this? If so can you let me know your game plan. I kind of feel like a failure not being able to breastfeed consistantly and would like some support from someone who went through this as well.
I appreciate the feedback and look forward to talking with you all!!
