Some women just can't breastfeed my mom never could. I got mine to come in thank goodness but formula is fine too. My brother is studying to become a doctor, another almost started school to go into law, and I've worked in the nursing field for about 5 years. There's nothing wrong with formula. Just do what you can :-). Hope that helps :-).

I think because you are depressed your breast milk could go down?
Don't worry mommy. Have you ever thought of giving him/her formula? Why is it that you are trying to pump? Do you work? Do you just not want to get up and do it in the middle of the night (no judgment here)? Do you just not think he/she is not getting anything?
Also, I have heard that sometimes women with bigger breasts need the bigger cups when pumping.. but I can't pump either so I don't know.. I know my baby is getting enough but it just wont come out with a pump.. :/

Have you tried to express milk with your hand first sometimes that helps, I didn't have any luck with breast pumps either this time around and mostly just hand expressed milk into a bottle when I needed too. I know sometimes it's hard but just hang in there you will get through whatever you are going through
