    Cant do it

    Advertisements
    I dont think I can continue to breastfeed!!! Its so painful and Im so uncomfortable. I can enjoy it because Im in so much pain. Ive made sure over and over that shes latched on right and it still hurts! Im always engorged even after she eats. I feel so bad that I want to quit because I know its best for her, but I just feel like I can keep going on without loosing my mind!!

    Have you gone to a lactation specialist? That's what has saved many friends of mine.

    BF's was ALWAYS painful for me. All my kids I pumped and feed them through the bottle. Dont ask, the pain from pumping wasnt even close to what I would have from actual BF'ing. If it is painful for you, she is going to pick up on it. If you can deal with pumping, pump and give it to her from a bottle.
