Some is better than none, right?


My daughter (Olivia) was born via c-section on September 5, 2018 - BEST day of my life!

She was exclusively breastfed for the first week of her life.. & sadly, didn’t gain any weight (didn’t lose any weight either)! So I began to make her bottles with half breastmilk and half formula and I’ve been doing that for almost two weeks now.

Fast forward to the last two days - I pump and get MAYBE 1 ounce of formula every 3-4 hours. I’m starting to get very discouraged and I want to give up breastfeeding but I can’t bring myself to do it.. I know that they said “breast is best” and whatnot, but what the heck?! I feel so guilty about wanting to stop and I’ve been beating myself up about this all day long.. to the point where I’ve been ugly crying! #noshame

I just want the best for my daughter.. hopefully her picture will brighten your day as much as it brightens mine! 💕
