To breast Feed or not to that is the question?
I'm new to the group, I have a question but I dont want any controvesary around it just personal experiece advise. I'm pregnant with my second child my frist child I did not breat feed and she had a hard time from birth drinking formula and digesting but she had health issues we where unaware of as well but now with my second child, I would like to try breastfeeding but the issue is this.. I have a huge sensory issues and very senstive breast already that even hubby can not touch the nipples pregnant or not as they hurt. I had a halo test and passed out due to the pain from the nipples being touched and sucction in the past. The other issues is I have a very bad case of OCD ( obsessive compulsive disorder ) I have been off my meds sense i found out i was pregant and the OCD is in VERY high gear im so aggitated and on egde. With my frist baby i had the baby blues im little concerned that when my second baby is born i will have baby blues as well as the OCD will continue to be the same or if not more intense. I will not take medicine if im breast feeding but if i dont breast feed ill be able to go back on my meds to help with the anxiety attacks of OCD. I'm very torn as to what to do or what would be best because i want the best for my children and breastfeeing is much healthier for babies but at the same time i need to be okay and im unsure i can handle the breastfeeding or not. nor do i have a clue what ill be doing with breastfeeing as i never done it before. Any advise ? I'm a little hestitate to post this please respond with kindness please im really torn about this. Thanks so much..
