I only breastfed her for 10 days, and even though I did have some issues (a kidney infection, low supply, latch issues, etc), I've been feeling guilty that I did not try hard enough or long enough to keep giving her my breast milk...
Granted I really dislike breastfeeding, but for some reason I feel like I should have done it for her!.. I feel like such a horrible mother for having deprived my baby of nature's best food!
Maybe that's why she got sick!??
I know so many mommies that stick to breastfeeding for so long and overcome so many obstacles in that journey... I should be one of those moms, and I'm not... it makes me sad!
I guess I will get to try again if we ever have another child... maybe then, these feelings of guilt will go away and I will accomplish a healthy breastfeeding relationship between my child and I...
I can only hope that will happen one day! ;)
Am I weird for feeling this guilt so late in the game?
