I was so devastated when my breast refused to produce milk

When I had my first baby, I was so devastated when my breast refused to produce milk.


I tried every advice given, but none of them seemed to have any effect, everyone blamed me including my husband and the doctor.

The nurses practically wrung out my breast and yet nothing happened. I felt like a failure especially when my baby ignored my breast and rushed the formula.

With the second baby there was an increase in the flow, but it was still not enough so I still had to combine with formula.

I am pregnant again and have refused to disturb myself about whether my breast will flow or not. I have left that to God. Rather, I am grateful to God for giving me two healthy beautiful girls. The important thing here is to love yourself and your kids. The bonding will come!
