I'm having such a hard time admitting defeat. I wanted to BF our daughter so badly. We got off to a rough start and she lost a lot of weight so we supplemented with formula and I pumped. In the beginning she was getting about half of her intake from me. I continued to try to increase my supply. Now she's 9w old and I barely get one bottle a day. DH says to be happy I gave her what I could for as long as I could. To me I feel like I failed and it's the worst type of fail because it has to do with her. I know there's nothing wrong with formula and she's thriving. It's just something I wanted for her so badly. I look forward to putting the pump away and getting my boobs back, but I can't seem to pull the plug knowing that it will be her last bit of BM. It breaks my heart.
If you went through this, any tips for helping me get past that final bottle?
