Hello, I am a first time mom to a 6 day old beautiful baby boy. i started to breastfeed from day one, yes i heard the stories of how much it hurts but i still wanted to give it a try because i know that breast milk is the best milk but honestly this sucks, it is very painful. it makes me so emotional because i feel like i am failing my son because i want to start him on the bottlei feel like i am failing him because im giving up, i try to seek advice from my family and friends that have kids, my two older sisters have kids and they didnt not breastfeed and their kids are just fine, my best friend has a son and he is fine. my sons father is the all naturla kind of person even thought he eat junk food and fast food all the time he just want what is best for our son but he doesnt have to go thought the pain that i am going through, he gives me good advice he was the one who told me about this website. i guess my whole point is would it be wrong of me to start giving my son the bottle and stop breastfeeding? i could really use some good advice and help so i can stop stressing and killing myself over this. i love my son and want all the right things for him. im afraind that by stopping he will get sick or something happen tp him, its like im scaring myself into breastfeeding him when in the back of my mind i know i want to put him on the bottle. i feel like i cant enjoy my son because im so worried about this whole breastfeeding thing. i am a big worrier and i tend to over think things i could really use some good advice and would greatly appreicate it. :-) Thank you.
