inability to breast feed

by T

I have a five week old, and an inability to breast feed.

I was breast feeding exclusively for 3 weeks around the clock. He never gained weight. Pumping brought very little. Maybe 1 ounce totals. The pediatrician suggested I supplement.

What a difference that made! I had a content happy baby instead of a screaming baby. I have mostly gone to formula now.

I still feel guilty. I am tired of hearing that breast is best. My husband is suggesting I go to a breast feeding support group. I just want to give up. I don't see me ever being successful at breast feeding.
