I am exclusively breastfeeding my 12 wk old baby. She will not take a bottle at all. I offer it every day and she just chews on it. Because of this I have to take her everywhere with me while my husband stays home and relaxing. Of course he goes with me when I have to run errands to the grocery store or Target. But I can't even visit friends without her. I can't go and get a mani/pedi, get my hair done at the salon in fear that I will have to feed the baby once there. I feed "on demand" and often when I think she will go 2 hrs w/o eating, she will want to eat again! That's the frustrating thing with breastfeeding. Sometimes she will even go 3 hrs between a feeding. So, she is unpreditcable! When I do go grocery shopping alone, it's hard becuse again, what if she suddenly gets hungry and I have a cart full of groceries...I just have to leave it there while I leave to feed her. I just wanna know am I the only one going through this? I'm sure I'm not, but it's nice to hear from other women that are in the same boat as me. It's frustrating!
