I am expecting my second child and I have been going back and forth trying to decide if I want to breastfeed again. With my first I breastfed for a full year. Reflecting on that time I remember being really depressed, I was confined, and I was overwhelmed because pumping DID NOT work for me. I had the nurses and lactation specialist try to assist me. My breasts are extremely huge and overall I just remember this being a difficult time for me. I am trying so hard not to be or sound selfish but I can't help but feel this way. I didn't have help since pumping did not work for me so while DH was sleeping peacefully, I was waking up every 2-3 hours feeding. I felt drained. Please share your thoughts, suggestions, formula choices, etc. Thank you for responding.
