    No you havnt let Braydon down at all. Please dont think like that...

    I get very cross when some Breastfeeding Mums and HV's put on so much pressure that those that either give up or choose not to Breastfeed feel guilty or a failure.

    I have Six children and I have fed 3 of the 6 myself and the other 3 by formula and they are all equally as healthy as each other and all thrived equally and now are teenagers that take up a lot of room !!!

    I am feeding Aidan at the moment, and will do so as long as I can. My daughter who is 18 is due any day now but I have told her that if she does not get on with Breastfeeding and its not for then so be it.

    Stop feeling like you do, Braydon is adorable, you are a good mum and hes thriving !!!

    P.s...Nearly threw up when the woman said she had a baby on one breast and her husband on the other....sorry but that is gross !!!

    Sarah, have got my bossy boots on and am telling you not to dare feeling guilty. From your post i understand you did it for 2 weeks, well you gave him the best start you could and for whatever reason it didn't work out for you both and so you decided to do what you felt was best for B and he sure looks a happy healhy little boy to me. I was very lucky in that I had a great midwife at the hospital who was really supportive and recommended nipple shields and toping up even though she wasn't allowed to do so as the hospital was so pro breast feeding. If it hadn't had been for her I would have stopped. In fact I was in pain again yesterday and wanted to stop. Its not easy. I was formula fed as was my OH and we are both tall and healthy.

    the twins realy upset me too but the little boy made me laugh when he was calling cows milk "daddy's milk". i thought it was a v interesting programme and it made me think, though not about feeding till 7 years :D
