I had difficulty breastfeeding my daughter due to breast reduction surgery. I have a hard time dealing with people close to me breastfeeding so easily. Anyone have this feeling? I feel bad for feeling that way but I wanted to exclusively breastfeed so bad and had to supplement some.

I know it's frustrating to see other people doing easily what you want so badly to do. But please remember that ANY amount of breast milk is a wonderful gift you are giving your baby. Many moms combo feed for many different reasons. It's not surprising that you struggled with making enough milk after a breast reduction. I've included a few links to good sites about breastfeeding after breast reduction surgery. You may find some more support and answers there too.
