I still breastfeed my daughter, 2 months in the morning and through out the day that her daddy or someone else isn't here. I finally got breastfeeding down to where its not hurting me and frustrating her. We started supplementing formula when I got Mastitis(breast infection) from breastfeeding and I was so sick for two days that I couldn't get out of the bed almost, so my husband gave her formula and told me to not worry about breastfeeding anymore. I'm happy with the decision, feeding isn't all on me and I don't have to have a machine stuck to my boob just so others can feed her. Now to my question... My husband thinks that her nipple flow is too slow, because when we give her her bottle at night and she doesn't drink all six ounces that shes falling asleep cause shes tired of sucking on the slow nipple flow. I think hes crazy, shes used to have to work hard on sucking my from breast and I'm afraid that if we introduce a new nipple flow that she will get frustrated with the breast because she has to work harder and I'm not completely ready to give breastfeeding my baby up. Anyone have an advice or agree with me on this?
