When I found out I was pregnant, no, wait…Before I even planned for pregnancy, I have decided that I will breastfeed all my kids. I want to give them the best of everything. Now when little Phoebe was born, I started breastfed her (still going). Obviously, one will know you will be sleep deprived, you cannot go anywhere without taking your baby with you etc…That for me was ok. However, my baby’s weight has been an issue to the rest of my family member. She is very tiny and close to being underweight. And, oh did I mention she cries day and night?
Now I have a little nephew who was born a few months earlier than Phoebe. He is the quietest little thing. Ummm actually not quite little. he is 11kg and 9 months. He drinks formula and eats like an adult. At least the portion is like an adult. He rarely cries. Even during vaccination, he just let out a squeak.
My sister in law is anti-breastfeeding. She said the reason my little one cries so much and is so tiny is due to me breastfeeding. I resulted in a clingy and never satisfied baby. Of course I don’t believe her but this kinda throw my confidence abit. I have commited to give my baby the best and I would appreciate support…Not to shatter my confidence in breastfeeding.
