My newborn is 2 months old today. My first two weeks as a new mom was ruined due to pressure from lactation consultants. They all had different opinions and methods. My daughter had a latching problem and she starved the first two days of her life. After two weeks of no sleep, anxiety, Zoloft and pain, I finally broke down on a Saturday morning at 3:00am. I felt horrible for not being able to provide for my daughter, but I had to be healthy to be a good mom. She has been on formula ever since. She is thriving, strong, adorable and amazing. If I could have continued to breastfeed, I would have. I got mastitis, went on antibiotics, got more infections and was in a lot of pain. I had an amazing support group of family and friends who never questioned our choice and wanted to see me healthy. Every child is different. Every mother is different. You have to do what is best for your child and yourself.
