I have a new understanding

I understand now why people quit.

I know understand what many other moms have voiced.

I hate breastfeeding right now.

If I did not know that it gets better I think that I would give up.

The little man was a great nurser. I dont remember it being this hard. Maybe it is just one of those things that you forget. Or it could be that my most resent memory of nursing was just a year ago and a two year old that could do everything on his own.

I know it will get better. I know it will. I know it will.

I wont give up.

It will get better. Hang in there. Is she having latching issues? Little ones sometimes have a hard time with that-- she's little in my experience, anyway. *hugs*

:) It could be a combination of you forgetting how difficult it is at first and her just having a hard time with it. Trenton and Natalie have very different latches... it just takes time but you will both get more comfortable with each other. It will get better but dont feel bad if you need to supplement! I know you just want whats best for your family, just dont forget that YOU'RE PART OF THE FAMILY TOO!!! :) Right now... you are the most important part of your family and if you aren't doing well, no one else will do well. Get your lap top , some tea and just relax. Clearing your head may help too. Dont over think it.
