i decided today.  i left it.  we are no longer breastfeeding and the posts make me tear up so i decided to leave it.  it started out with a few days he refused to nurse which turned into a week.  a week turned into two weeks.  and now two into three.....its over and i know it.  i wish it wasnt but it is.  i am trying to remind myself to be thankful for every day he did want to breastfeed by i wont lie.  it still hurts a little to have your own child reject you for a plastic bottle :(

 hugs. if you need to leave the group to be able to heal and move forward as a mother then that is what you should do. its rough, but just know that you are truly a woman who did everything to make bf happen with your child.

Thanks everyone. It is a great group but visiting it sometimes feels like pouring salt into a deep wound...its better if I take a break right now.

Plus its filled lots of super smart mamas who know more about successfully breastfeeding than I do. Maybe if anyone ever needs help with getting tons donor milk they will pass my name on!

HUGS momma, my friend had this same issue happen because of her IGT.  He is just like all other men LAZY lol and prefers the easy way to get milk, the breast takes work!

Maybe reconsider going back in the future... The feelings of hurt should fade some and you're a great resource for others :)

**i totally understand leaving though, just reminding that one day maybe you can go back without so much hurt**
