The depression I've felt from starting to dry up my milk supply took me by surprise. Even though I know the decision to stop breastfeeding is what's best for me, I still struggle with guilt & wondering if it's the right thing. My weaning journey is full of both good & bad days. Motherhood is by far the most challenging & rewarding thing I've ever done in my whole life.
I've decided to stop breastfeeding. The decision has not been easy or come lightly. Breastfeeding has been extremely hard for me. I know some people struggle more than others & I unfortunately have struggled a lot. Over the last couple weeks I've had mastitis in both breasts, thrush, allergic reactions & that's just some of the physical problems. It has also taken a toll on me mentally & emotionally. I wonder if I'm just not as strong as other people but I know comparing is the wrong thing to do. I was very honest & vulnerable in this video because that's the state I'm in. No matter what your experience has been with feeding your baby, I hope you have peace about it & know you're not alone.
This is my 1 month postpartum update! I wanted to share with you how I've been doing mentally, emotionally, physically. Everything from the baby blues to breastfeeding, my weight loss journey & c-section recovery. Motherhood is like nothing else I've ever experienced. It's been so fulfilling & tiring at the same time!
