try to breastfeed my next baby

by Ashley

The women out there who can breastfeed their LO's are blessed. It's very aggrevating when you hear a breastfeeding mom complaining that It hurts or that she doesn't think she can keep on and wants to quit for her own sake.



I am expecting my second In October 2012!! I have an eight month old who Is very healthy, happy and never misses A meal :) It was my dream to breastfeed, to give him the best I could but sadly that never worked out.

I cried In the hospital, I cried when I came home. I followed up with lactation consultants for 2 months and nothing changed..so I just had to move on and put It behind me and settle with formula. This Is something that sticks with me, A goal I had set that was never accomplished.

I'm going to be strong as I always am and try to breastfeed my next baby. If It doesnt work out..well atleast I tried.

CAN I HELP

Hi the

I totally understand what you are saying. I planned to breastfeed my first, born May 2011. But I hardly had any milk and he was losing weight when I just breastfeed. There is a bit more of a story than this and I think I know what went wrong but it is too long to mention here!

Congrats on your pregnancy! We too are now trying for our second. I hope breastfeeding works out better for both you and me next time. You don't mention exactly what went wrong with your breast feeding. I have done so much research into this topic and am attending ABA meetings to learn more.

If you (or anyone else) would like to share what happened with me, feel free to email me ([email protected]) and maybe I could offer some of the many suggestions that I am going to try next time.
