I am a new first time mum to a beautiful baby boy, who is 4 days old. We are currently formula feeding as well as expressing, as our little man has very poor sucking reflexes and was struggling and losing weight and I am not producing much milk, I am also on motilium tablets. He was born by Caesarian also. We leave hospital tomorrow. I have had many chats with the midwifes and some push for breastfeeding others say do what you are comfortable with. I have a lot of anxiety and really am not happy breastfeeding and expressing, it is making me very upset and so I am considering just going to formula all the time. My husband supports me no matter what. I am just looking to hear from anyone else who may have been in a similar situation. I feel so guilty like maybe I am not a good enjoy mum as I don't want to breastfeed and worry if I am doing the right thing for my little man.
Please don't try and preach the benefits of breastfeeding, I am just wanting to know if anyone else has been in the same situation, what you did and how you felt about it. Thanks for anyone who replies.
