You may or may not have read this post back in February, where I shared that I wanted to try to at least pump, if not breastfeed LP. I had done my research, I had talked to people...it was possible, I could do it.
I have however, had more time to really sit & think about it, along with talking with others & I am starting to realized I have A LOT working against me.
*The fact that I have PCOS makes is harder to produce milk, whammy #1.
*Strike number 2 is the age that LP will be. I always knew that LP probably wouldn't breastfeed because of his/her age, but then I got thinking, it may even be time to ween from bottles. Also, the nutrients needed from the breastmilk are not as needed by the age LP will be once home.
There are a lot of other reasons, but I will not bore you with them all. It breaks my heart, it really does...but in the long run, I know this will be the best for both LP & I.
I can honestly say that this, out of everything I will be missing from not being able to have a child is that I will not breastfeed.
