I had a csection and started BFing right after DD was placed on my chest. Long story short, I gave up at Day 9. I was miserable and DD was miserable. I ended up with mastitis and a cellulitis infection. My GP was very supportive and so was my family when it came FFing. I cried when my GP spoke to me about FFing. It was the baby health nurse that made me take a deep breath and she said something that has stuck with me. Researching formula brands made me feel sad again. Having to agree with disclaimers that breast is best made me feel rubbish. I sucked it up and went and bought a tin of formula. I noticed a difference in DD after the first bottle. She had a full belly and was happy. I knew then I'd made the right decision for us but I still beat myself up about it for a bit.
I feel like maybe it should be said, breast is best but it's OK if you choose to FF. Also, the judgement needs to stop. Each to their own. I had a friend who BF and at every chance was telling me things to get my "supply" back when i'd been FF for months.
Wether you BF or FF, you are feeding your child either way.
