Help! I am close to quitting on breastfeeding and I really don't want to.
I am at uni full time so have to express between classes/lectures, DP gives bub bottles when I am out and I bf when home.
I get very short breaks and am a little tired of spending all of them expressing and still not having enough (it takes 2x 20-30mins sessions to pump what bub takes per feed). Stupidly, I have been lazy and skipped a couple of sessions. Of course, my supply has dropped which is making it even harder.
I am just so tired. Life is stressful at the moment and I am over carrying my breast pump etc around with me all day. Sick of having to walk between buildings because there is no fridge in the parents room. Sick of 17 yr olds staring at me like an alien when I put a container of breastmilk in the fridge.
I fought so hard to keep breastfeeding when the first 6 weeks were pure torture, so I know I will regret it if i stop now, when bub is only 4 months old.
Please help convince me to keep on going.
