I'm struggling with breastfeeding big time - the midwives at the hospital have been helpful but my nipples are so torn up that it's just agony.
I've been trying to express but it just takes so long each time & basically means the baby is almost constantly screaming.
I still want baby to get as much colostrum as possible but I don't think I can express enough for every feed. Even expressing is making my breasts really sore, there's no way I can use a pump at this stage.
Therefore if I supplement EBM with formula, will there still be the option of going back to exclusive breastfeeding when my breasts are healed??
