I'm sorry you have had such a hard time! You have done the best you could! Be proud for the time you did it. Don't be hard on yourself! Your baby has benefited from every feeding you have given him, and formula won't negate that! Congrats for making it this far!

I recognize your sn but I am not familiar with your situation, could you fill me in? Remember that breastfeeding doesn't have to be all or nothing, do what you can do whether that means once a day or many times more. Any breastmilk is better than none at all, and it's still wonderful bonding time with your little one. Breastfeeding moms often get stuck focusing on quantity over quality, any amount is beneficial, even one single drop. 1 drop of breastmilk contains more than 200 stem cells and has active antibodies in it.

I am sorry that things have ended up this way. Your daughter gotten plenty of your nourishment for a long time. You should be proud and you are a success. I wish you less stress in the future. Good luck.

I got the depo in october, we both had thrush around thanksgiving. She went on a strike due to teething, in october I got food poisioning in october that caused a huge supply. She was also born with a tongue tie that was fixed at about 1 month old, and she had a 12 day NICU stay because she was a 35 weeker. We have had everything thrown our way. I might try and pump a couple times a day so that she can have some mommy milk but I cant do it at every feeding.

She has trouble nursing because her teeth are really bothering her.

One drop made you a success. And if tomorrow you decide to change your mind... you can.
