feel really sad for my niece, just had a baby wants to breastfeed but scared :(
My 20 year old niece just had her 1st baby yesterday. During her pregnancy she said she wanted to give breastfeeding a try. Then right before her baby came my mom was talking her out of it. My mom is not supportive at all she feels like this give the baby a bottle of formula and be done. I went to see the baby in the hospital today. I saw my niece pull out a bottle of formula to feed him. I said to her I thought you were gonna try breastfeeding. Her response was to many people coming in and out of here visiting so I can't do it. I told her yes she can! If she feels uncomfortable about her breast showing around others just use a blanket to cover up. I feel so sad for her and know her milk will probably not come in good and if it does it will soon dry up and I know she wanted to try it. Seems like I am the only one who would have supported her with breastfeeding.
Soon to be "PROUD MOM" to 7 boys, come November 2013!!! Thank you Lord for blessing me!
