My frustration began when After 3 days of only expressing not ever 1ml at a time and having a very hungry baby I decided he needed some formula and he was cry and hungry!
This being my first baby I had no idea how to breast feed and every nurse that comes in has a different way of showing you but it wasn't working! He was so upset during feeding and didn't have any sucking technique.
After asking for some formula at 3 am I felt like I had just asked for my baby to be out up for adoption it was a joke! I had to sign a consent form saying that it was my choice to give him formula!
After 2 weeks of trying to express ( expressing 4 times a night not even getting 5 mls and then having to too theh give him formula 3 times so being up 7 times a night was beyond a joke the pressure they put on me at feeding class was absolutely stupid.
Luckily I had a child health nurse come to my house and agree with me that I couldn't keep doing this, formula was fine for him he was a much happier baby because of this!
I feel for women who feel the pressure of breast feeding, your health is just as important and a well feed happy baby is much better then a baby not getting any breast milk and loosing weight!!
