I had my first DS 5 years ago I was 17 at the time and determined to breastfeed. I had signed up for WIC and was still living at home. I had a horrible L&D and ended up with an C-section after 12 hours on Pitocen, 3 hours of pushing and he still would not fit. They ended up putting a pin hole in my spine with the epidural, which caused the worst headachs in my life. I could not sit up, hold my son nothing.
When i did start feeling well enough to breastfeed My mother would push her way in the room, kick my son's dad out, and be right up in my face. I was so engorged that i couldn't get my son to latch. So I failed.
Now she told me the other day that if this baby is going to be just as big (ds was 9lbs 5.75oz) That there is NO WAY that I am going to be able to breast feed this baby.. I just wanted to cry, she has no Idea that because of pain and waiting too long to start, and the fact that it just weirded me out having my mom stare at my breasts is why I failed not that i couldn't produce enough
