I have been experiencing the baby blues and my baby is 6mo old. I dont want to change her diapers or spend any time with her. I dont even want to nurse her anymore. I am mad at myself and stressed out over everything. last night i got so mad cause all she was doing was crying that i yelled at her. i then walked away and made my husband go deal with her. i was never like this with my son, i did not nurse him either. none of my family is supportive about me breastfeeding either. the only one that supports me is my husband. i wish that we had a support group where i am at but the closest one is over an hour away. i just need to know that i have support and it does not feel like that.

My first suggestion is to talk to your doctor about how you feel. However there are times it gets so overwhelming you just have to walk way. Lay her down somewhere safe and take a hot shower. My kids are 2yr. 10mon. apart and sometimes I have to pump and give a bottle to my husband because I am overwhelmed. I love them both very much but I have had the baby blues. As for your family an breastfeeding I don't know what to tell you other than it is your choice to breastfeed not there's. I chose to breastfeed both my children because of the benefits for them and me not my family. Formula is also very expensive an not natural.
