Hey everyone! I am 25, FTM. LO was born April 21st. I'm a nurse. Started dating DH at 14 and we've been married for 2 years.
I breast fed for the first 6 weeks after LO was born. Other than having major oversupply, I had no physical issues that kept me from breastfeeding. However, breastfeeding gave me major anxiety and made me feel trapped and like my life was over. LO was ALWAYS hungry. I never had a moment to myself. I never left the house because I didn't want to NIP and worried about having a place to nurse. And then I worried about leaking onto my shirt while I wasn't home from the oversupply.
After I gave it my best go for 6 weeks, I started giving LO ready to feed formula, and she is so much happier. And so am I. I feel like a person again and like I can live a normal life.
