I have been breastfeeding for 6 months now and I'm so emotional! How long will this last? Is it normal?

I went through that with my first child only. I realized with my second and third I was less emotional and felt less overwhelmed. Most of my stress and emotions came from so much family and friends opions, exhaustion of visits. By the time I had my third, I requested everyone wait until a week after I came home with her to visit. Other than her grandparents and great grandparents who were welcomed on limited visits. It's ok and they didn't love us any less. I agree if you are emotional it would be worth mentioning to your OB. I didn't experience that length of emotions with either three post pregnancies. But, be aware my children are now 16, 14 and 13. You will be emotional for the rest of your life to a degree, we are mommies and loving our kids so much brings out emotions oflaughter, tears, some we can't even describe....enjoy each of them.

The feeling is normal but its not from breast feeding you may have a little postpartum you should talk to your doctor if it continues. just stay active with baby and continue breast feeding its the best for you and baby and congrats good luck :)

Not all of the emotional upheaval is breatfeeding, plenty of that comes from the whole experience of being a new mum. Congratulations on choosing to breastfeed and be glad that you can. the trick is to focus on all of the fantastic emotions that are part of your new adventure and try to enjoy the ride along the way. Good luck, it will get better.
