Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I hated breastfeeding

my confession? I absolutely hated breastfeeding my son. The entire year I did it. But I did it because I knew it was better for him and it saved money. But OMG did I hate it. Im not sure if I could do it with my next child, but I think I would feel horribly guilty if I did not.

I'm breastfeeding twins right now, and I have to say, it is not quite the beautiful bonding experience like with one.  Sometimes, I want to scream "Stop touching my boobs!", but they are little, so they wouldn't get it.  Plus, it's mean to yell at babies.

My confession: I would have totally stopped by now if the thought of buying formula for two babies didn't make me want to vomit.

You are not alone... I hate it too. It was an effing nightmare and affected my bond with my son, also was a major source of my PPD.

I'm exclusively pumping this time around and couldn't be happier :) she still gets breast milk and I get to keep my sanity. It's a win-win!

Why did you hate it so much? Time consuming? Pain? Just curious.

Im not sure why. It didnt hurt and it had nothing to do with time. I just.. didnt like how it felt I guess.

I bet he is grateful for your dedication though! :) You did a great thing for him!
