I checked out the breastfeeding board yesterday and I really wish I hadn't. It really made me feel like a terrible mother. It seemed like if you do anything other than exclusively breast feed then you're a piece of garbage. It seems like I do everything that the people on this board find completely sinful - I breastfeed with the assistance of a shield because the baby would NOT latch on after she was born, I pump and feed from a bottle, and formula feed on top of breastfeeding/pumping because since two weeks the baby has just been completely unsatisfied with solely breastfeeding. It made me worry my supply is going to bottom out because of the way I feed her and made me worry that since I'm starting birth control in a few days (regular pill) that that will make my supply dry up as well. I also read one reply to a post commenting that the amount one baby was being fed during the day was too much, so then I felt like I've been overfeeding mine and what if I'm setting her up to be an overeater her whole life. Add on top of that that I didn't get a nap yesterday and so of course the baby chose last night to just be totally inconsolable for hours after a week or so of sleeping for very nice 2 to 3 hour stretches, so I was just crying all night while attempting to comfort her and while feeding her. I breastfed her at one point for like 30-45 minutes, she came off and seemed sleepy, then began screaming again, so I sent my husband downstairs to make a bottle of formula, which made me feel like crap and cry even more. Now that it's the next day/daytime I obviously know I was completely over reacting and letting my first time mom-ness make me feel inferior/stupid, but needless to say I don't believe I will be going over to the the breastfeeding board again!
