I have a daughter that will be 4 months old on the 27th. I have been breastfeeding her since day one. Recently my doctor suggested putting her on cereal twice a day to help her sleep through the night. I was excited because I thought I might actually get some sleep and it would give me a break from nursing. Well, I have mixed the cereal with breastmilk and it is not helping her sleep through the night. So not only am I still nursing all day and night, I am also pumping. I really want to stop breastfeeding. I am physically and emotionally drained. I know that all the reasons I want to stop are selfish and that breastfeeding is really good for my baby. I feel like a horrible mother because I hate breastfeeding. Any advice?
