I will be headed back to work soon and I dont have enough stored in the freezer even though I pump everyday, rented a hospital grade pump, tried Fenugreek pills, and Im lucky if I can get 2oz total a day to store. I never had a large milk supply, just enough to feed baby. I will be transitioning to formula after 12 weeks of breastfeeding, I feel incredibly guilty and feek like Ive failed as a nursing mom. If my baby should get sick as she gets older I will always blame myself becausd i wasnt able to breastfeed through 6 months. It is a guilt i cant live with. I feel like society ostricizes mothers who dont breastfeed, as i have received a few looks from people even friends when i mention my transition. How have you dealt with this?
