I recently had a friend have nearly the same experience I did. Induction, c-section, formula ‘supplementing,’ discouragement from the pediatrician and encouragement for formula. I feel for her, I’ve been there. Will she make it? Will every Mom in that situation make it? No. How can new Moms, tired and worried about caring for their newborn baby not succumb to negativity about breastfeeding and pressure to use formula? I made it. I’m on the other side! My 4th baby is now 7 months old and going longer between feedings. Tasting a little food here and there and sleeping gently by my side at night. What do I wish someone would have told me? Breastfeeding can be challenging, babies eat all the time and are not on a schedule, they have growth spurts, babies need to nurse for comfort and to help adjust to life outside of the womb. Chores will go undone, showers will be missed but my God these will be the best days of your life!
