I just feel like expressing the fact that I managed to breastfeed my son without the nipple shield all day yesterday & today. I am soo excited !! I thought all hope was gone, but I'm glad I kept at it. Even when I'm so beyond frustrated and just exhausted, I know I'm giving him my milk & It's so worth it. I've topped it off with formula, but there was once where I didn't need to. Hoping to gradually get to where we will be strictly breast milk. Sorry, I am just so relieved.
Good job, mommy! My LO is just over 4months now. I still remember painful feeding nights so bad that I just felt like giving up so many times. I am SO HAPPY that I didn't. It really does get better, I promise! Now I don't even feel a thing and feedings are only between 5 and 15 minutes
