I have talked about BF my daughter since I found out I was expecting . I have also expressed to my husband several times that I want to BF our baby. Well she is 6 days old and is obviously goin through a growth spurt which means she Will be hurry more often causing her to be extra fussy because breastmilk doesn't flow like a bottle and it doesn't last as long as formula. Well I was just nursing going on about an hour in a half my husband starts complaining asking how long does breastmilk last, how long do I plan on BF and why does she keep crying. My feelings are really hurt I keep trying to explain the importance of breastmilk and getting full supply in so that she will get full in one feeding. So I did a NO NO to shut him the hell up and keep the peace...I gave her formula(please don't be mean)she drank about 1.75 oz after nursing for over an hour. I hate giving her formula she always pukes after it and drinks way to much. So as I was trying my post she pukes and it came out of her mouth and nose so now I don't want to lay her down....UGH a part of me wants to stand my ground and another part wants to give in just to keep the peace. I am so torn, hurt, confused, and angry all at the same time.
