I chose to BF my DD (now 2weeks old) knowing it was the best thing for her health.
I know it's only early days still but I'm finding particularly on days that she fusses and wants to feed seemingly non stop. I don't enjoy feeding her.
I find it difficult to be confined to bed or the couch for 30min at a time..sometimes more. I can walk and feed but it takes its toll on my arms and back if I do it too much. I also feel bad for ds - I don't want him to feel left out and that I don't have time for him since I'm always holding the baby.
I hear and read alot about how much other mums seem to love feeding and having those special moments with their LOs. I just don't feel that way ATM. I feel a bit like a cow. Especially on days she feeds non stop I'm just sore and tired and can't relax even when she is sleeping thinking she will wake at any second and then I have to do it all over again.
Is this just normal newborn challenges? Did you find it a struggle at first but things got better?
Is it normal to not love feeding but still do it for the good of your baby?
