She revealed that she couldn’t nurse her daughter effectively and she felt guilty about that. She said she was determined to breastfeed her son but when he was three weeks old he started crying seemingly non-stop.
“It felt like he was either eating, sleeping, or screaming. He hardly ever seemed satisfied and even when he was full, he was fussy. Between the stress and the sleep deprivation, I lost my grip on my emotions. I sobbed for no reason and screamed at my husband for the smallest infractions.
The low point came on a cloudy winter day when I looked over at my crying baby lying on the couch. I knew he needed a diaper change. I couldn’t gather the strength to help him. I couldn’t even convince myself to hold him. Anger had edged out my compassion for my only son. It was an irrational reaction that terrified me. That was the moment I realized breastfeeding had wedged itself between me and my child. That was the day that I stopped.”
