I want to breastfeed my newborn baby so bad and it makes me sad that I can't... It hurts too much and I had to give into a bottle of formula since my nipple started to bleed,... I want to bond with her and enjoy that and I can't, makes me want to breakdown and cry.
ETA: Thanks to all you mommas! For all the great advice, After one painful week of breastfeeding I still didn't give up I did use a nipple shield, still using it (not completely healed) and some lanolin cream i got through it, and it is much easier to breastfeed now we are both enjoying breastfeeding time! :) Im so happy i didn't give up, I'm stil a little sore but it's not as bad as it was before.
