I am starting by 6 month old on formula after exclusively breast feeding. I am barely pumping enough to keep up with her for daycare. I am obsessed with the amount of milk I either do or do not have and have not been able to leave my child with anyone to even do errands. I am starting to feel slightly depressed and isolated due to fact that I have not been able to get out except to work because I don't have enough pumped milk to have someone give her a bottle. I am feeling sooooo guilty and my anxiety level is through the roof because I feel so selfish. This finally will allow me to get to that Monday night pilates class that I have wanted to attend. I still plan on breast feeding in the morning and at night but the guilt is consuming me. Has anyone else felt this way or have any advise on how to ease the transition?
