Ok when I had my daughter I did first make the decision to breastfeed before she even came out into the world..well when I did try to breastfeed her she seemed to have gotten upset and wasn't latching onto the breast and I was scared there wasn't enough for her I had a breast reduction and I worried that might have affected the milk from coming in cause I did have little complication after my breast surgery, We did the thing where they taped a tube to my breast I tried pumping in the hospital and pumped for a good while nothing much came out, So I made the decision to try formula and she latched right onto the bottle more than the breast. But I felt like I was forced to breastfeed and when I said it wasn't going to work for her cause I felt it from my baby it wasn't working for her, I thought maybe I was nervous in the hospital with a whole bunch of people helping me at once with the breastfeeding and Olivia was screaming so I tried in the comfort of my home still no go with the breastfeeding. But I can feel that feeling of being looked down on for have chosen to bottle feed. So just wondering why is there some women who think their mother of the year cause they make milk?
