My baby is 3 months old and I am considering putting her onto formula, this is not something I am taking lightly and to be honest I dont realy want to but I am having so many problems with breast feeding im getting to the point where I just cant do it anymore. My baby has never latched on properly, I have been to lactation consultants to drs and midwives and it never makes a difference, therefore she has a lot of wind and I have sore nipples, my supply has gradually been decreasing as well so I went on maxalon to try and help and now I find that my milk is like water, my baby is not sleeping, is always cranky, I havent slept for more than two hours at a time and im just exhausted. When it comes to feeding her she is fussy, pulls off every few seconds and it takes up to an hour to get a good feed into her, but then she still needs another feed two hours later. I just feed sick at the thought of having to bottle feed her, I know it's selfish but more because it's just something specal between us, I feel like if I give that up then im just not needed or something, stupid I know and also the health benefits for her, I just dont know what to do, if I do put her onto formula can anyone recommend brands they have liked.
