loved breastfeeding but not sure i can do it with a one year old and newborn..
ok so here is my story. i breastfed my son til he was 3 1/2 months old. i loved it. i loved the bond it gave me with him, and it felt so natural. my only problem with it was that he wanted to be on me 24/7. i couldn't sleep because when i took him of the boob he would wake up and cry til i put him back on. when he was around 3 1/2 months old i realized that he wasn't getting enough food, so we switched him to formula. i cryed for days i felt like i failed him. anyways around the time i stopped breastfeeding i got pregnant again. im really want to breastfeed the next one when he/she is born, but i am worried for a few reasons
1. i wouldnt be able to handle breastfeeding and a 1 year old. as in will it take time away from my first?
2. this next baby will be like my first and want to be on me at all times, night and day.
3. what if the same thing happens with my first and i stop producing around 3 1/2 months.
breastfeeding is something special to me. it does not bother me to do it in public. also i should tell you that i tried pumping with my first and no luck, i couldn't get anything out with manual or electric. only by hand expressing. any advice is welcome, and if you have breastfeed a newborn, and took care of sibling (close in age) please let me know how that turned out for you.
