Mom Guilt is real…it totally screws with your head…and it’s hard to get rid of.

That is the 2,346,758th thing I have learned as a mother.
I swore to myself that I would breastfeed Henry as long as I could, but if it got really difficult when I went back to work then I would supplement with formula and not feel bad about it.
Well, guess how that went??? Not well at all.
I don’t want to give him formula…I just keep thinking how well he’s grown just having breast milk!

I know I’m being pig-headed.
Hank’s pediatrician said even the most well-meaning moms can get a bit crazy about breastfeeding.
I’m DETERMINED to keep nursing Hank. Even with a painful breast infection called mastitis that I keep getting.
We are working on clearing that up and Hank is a champ and helping Mom do that, but I’m exhausted.

And, yes, I’m smiling in that picture…but ask my husband…or mom or sister…I’m so stressed right now my head could burst at any moment!!
