Hi, Im a first time mom. My little girl is 3 weeks old and 3days. I am breastfeeding her but I am wanting to quit. I thought I could do it for a year or so I thought it would be easy. But I am tired of having my boobs hurt, my nips so sore and her wanting to eat all the time. I have already had mastitis and hoping not to get that again, I pump a few times a day so that her daddy can feed her and give me a little break but that doesnt seem to be helping. I really want to keep breastfeeding her beacuse i know how good is for her the longer i do it, but I dont think i can do this much longer.
Please does anyone have advice or a few words to keep me wanting to do this longer....
