My life sucks

I'm a first time mom of a five yearold little girl. I love her so much, but today was a difficult day. She's been wanting to breastfeed every 2 hours. I havent been able to produce enough milk so I have to make this little bag and put formula in it and put the tube on my nipple. She refiuses a bottle.

My husband and I fight a lot. My marriage is not  in a good state. I have no sex drive and my husband is angry a lot. He has been emotionally abusive.

...is 5 years old a typo? 

Either way, I'm sorry you're having a tough day.

I was wondering the same thing.

5 year old or 5 month old?

I'm sorry and I hope things get better.

yeah, wondered the same - 5-year-old child or 5-month-old child?

5 years old I'd say it's time for her to get off the teat... 5 months old, maybe increase your fluid intake and if you're not taking any vitamins, perhaps start taking a multivitamin or even a prenatal type

You produce more milk then you think.  Your breats don't need to be swollen for you to make milk.  Your body adjusts to the infants needs.

yes, sorry a typo. Five month old!   

My husband and I are going to counseling but he doesn't understand how his tone when we argue affects me. Am I just too sensitive? He reads my e-mails, goes on my ph, reads my texts and I have a suspicion that he is secretly recording my ph conversations. I feel like I'm in a prison. He is a jealous Italian man and he doesn't realize you can't put someone in a box in hopes they won't run away, because he is driving me away. I didn't have a huge sex drive after I got pregnant (three months after we met!) But I believe part of the reason is because he has been emotionally abusive. I shut down.


Anyways, thanks for your comments and for listening.

You can get a lot of help, and its free, at http://marriagebuilders.com. I'm a psychologist and inky experience most marriage counselor a don't know how to help. Dr. Harley of MB has been doing this for 40 years and knows what helps. Your dh needs to learn some sensitivity.
