I'm bfing because its best for my kids and that's fine but I really don't like it. I don't want to hear any advice or questions, I've already tried everything people on here have told me, I really just want people to commiserate with me - I just want to know I'm not alone. So, even if you LOVE it, think of one thing you don't like about it.

It's not for everyone. Only you and your body knows what you do or don't like. Don't let the breastfeeding nazis try to make you feel bad for not loving breastfeeding.

I HATED pumping. My little man never latched correctly as he was tongue tied. Pumping sucked so bad! It was painful and it totally RUINED what was once a nice rack.

I don't know if you mean sensitive like this but one thing I've had a hard time with is that when I think about breastfeeding my nipples get the same sensation as when I think about sex. It's creepy as hell and I hate it! That sensation used to put me in the mood, now I just get depressed lol

I hate when my son tries to take off running while latched. Or tries to latch while he still has food in his mouth. Ew.

there is nothing wrong with not liking breastfeeding some women just cant do or don't like it that is why we have formula. I breastfed my first son for 9 months and i didn't like the sore nipples and chapped nipples every now and then but i loved the bonding and knowing my son was getting the best milk i could give him. I have always been an advocate for doing whats right for u im pregnant now and will breastfeed my second son for as long as i can.

I hated it, too. I pumped and eventually gave up. It was just too hard for me, the baby couldn't latch. I once spent three hours trying to get her to feed, it was frustrating. Once I was pumping and it caused my nipples to bleed.

I am not liking it anymore. I loved it with my first but by the time I was done nursing him I didn't like it. With #2 it's just a chore. Now that he's a toddler, I hate it and have to talk myself out of weaning him every day.
