DS was in the NICu for 10 days, so I started out EPing. He never really got the hang of BFing, then we started adding cereal to his bottles for reflux, so from that point on I stopped even trying to BF and just have been EPing.
I have no support whatsoever. My mom and sister keep telling me to switch to formula, it will help DS's belly, he's always fussy, and they seem to think formula will help. I know this probably isn't true because I tried it with DS#1 for his reflux with no relief.
My husband can't seem to manage both kids while I pump. The baby screams he whole time, and my 2yo runs around like a lunatic. He is home for one pump while the kids are away and one overnight feed he does while I pump. he always makes snide remarks when I have to go pump after dinner, like the baby hates him, he will enjoy the 20 minutes of chaos, etc.
I'm at my wits end. Pumping isn't exactly fun, but I don't mind doing it because of the benefits for DS. I pumped for a year for DS#1, so I would feel so guilty not giving the same to DS#2. I have a great supply, and a huge freezer stash, it's just the support isn't there. Ugh, I know they say never quit on a bad day, but I'm ready to!
