I feel like a horrible mom, but I am tired of breast feeding. There are one or two feedings in a day that I LOVE, but the others I find to be time consuming and frustrating. He drinks from a bottle so much faster, so when I'm in a hurry I'm able to get done more quickly with a bottle. Also, my flow has slowed down and I don't have enough to pump and save up for a babysitter to feed. Which means if I don't use formula I can't ever leave my son--and everyone needs a break! I'm a stay at home mom which makes me feel so much worse. I know moms that want to keep breast feeding, but can't because it's too difficult at work. I feel like I might regret it if I give up already--my son is only 5 months old!! I know that "breast is best", but if it's frustrating me is it worth it? Any thoughts?
