Its been a long road for us. He did great in the hospital, but the day we were able to leave he decided he would only eat with a shield, okay thats fine. The first night we were home was not fun at all, my milk still hadn't come in and we were both getting frustrated, it was horrible. When my milk came in, the very NEXT day everything was great for like a week and I ended up getting mastitis, which sucked, but kept BF because I was told to. Once the infection went away all was okay for a few days, but I wasn't producing enough for him at the time he wanted which was ALL the time, so we started supplementing. Fast forward to now, He doesnt like BF anymore and im slowly drying up, on a good day I can get 3.3-4 ounces from both boobs and I never feel full anymore. I probably fully breastfed for about a month.
Anyone else in kind of the same boat as me, not being able to breastfeed very long. Some days I get sad because I wish I could still be BF, but cant do anything about it. Atleast he got the first month.
