Re: Feeding Help - Considering Giving up Breastfeeding

Don't give up! It becomes so much easier.  Your baby probably just wants to suck. Try a pacifier or have your partner hold, rock, shush, swing, etc.  Also, consider side lying nursing to give you some rest.  Or, have your partner wake up to give a full bottle of formula, and let you rest completely.  Infants go through many stages, and none or them are permanent or last very long.  In the long run, breast feeding is WAY easier that formula.  Imagine getting up everynight to heat water for formula, wash bottles, etc. Instead, you can just pop your nipple in your baby's mouth!  Also, breatfeeding is free, formula will cost you over $1000 a year.  You're doing great!
