Sorry I've disappeared but I seem to be trapped in some unidentifiable level of Hell. Scratch that. It's quite identifiable - Breastfeeding. I'm working with a lactation consultant and a post-partum doula to try and figure out why it's not working. Not to be a total downer (sleep deprivation makes me weepy) but not being able to do something that's so fundamentally part of being a woman makes me feel like a complete failure. It's totally irrational I know - breastfeeding has little to do with good parenting (my mother didn't breastfeed me and she's the best parent in the world). Still, lacking Mother's Milk, as it were, hits hard and deep.
Did anyone else go through this?
More when I'm in a better place.
