Can't Breast Feed

It's so frustrating that I can't breast feed my newborn baby. I tried since Sunday when we got home, but the baby just won't latch on my breast. The reason: because of my flat and inverted nipple. Aaarrgghh. It's so frustrating. I already made a research to find a remedy but it didn't work for me. So, my last resort is to pump my milk using a breast pump. Quite painful, but it's enough to give me relief and for baby to be able to get even a small amount of breast milk.

As of now, I don't have a choice but to do infant formula feeding. Costly, I know. But what can I do. I can't leave baby feeling hungry just because I can't breastfeed. I really envy those who can breastfeed their young. Because after all, breastmilk is still best for babies.

That's sad naman that you can't breastfeed your baby. Di bale na, tiis na lang magpump ng milk for the meantime coupled with infant formula.

When a person takes drugs or drinks some alcohol, it messes with his or her whole body. You may not notice it at first but it may show on your kids. You see when you consume drugs or alcohol it can screw up your reproductive system. As a result you could get a child with some kind of disability which would make you wonder why God wanted your kids to be like that, but in reality it could be your fault. That's why it is important to be really healthy before you get pregnant and after.
