Is it selfish my son is only seven weeks old and I am so ready to quit breastfeeding? Mainly because I want to go on a strict diet regimen in order to lose my last twenty pounds, but I know I cannot do that while breastfeeding because of needing to consume enough calories to produce breast milk.
I feel like a horrible mother for wanting to quit so early on. I know breastfeed babies have more nutritional benefits than not. I am on maternity leave for another few months so it’s not that I could not or can not breastfeed, I just am tired of it and ready to lose my baby fat. Is this selfish or vain ?
