I'm having a hard time mentally and emotionally with breastfeeding. I feel guilty for not liking it when so many struggle with latch and production and I don't. My only minor hardship physically is relying on a nipple shield.
I just feel like I'm feeding him all the time and for long periods of time. I've spent hour at a time doing it. My baby is five weeks. Will it get better soon as he gets older?
I struggled with baby blues the first two weeks and still have anxiety and have hard time not getting upset when he does. Maybe it comes with being a ftm. I feel like I don't know what I'm doing.
Can anyone commiserate? Any advice is appreciated? It helps to write this and vent even.
