Are you me?! Thank you for expressing so wonderfully, comically, but also seriously, what those first months can be like for some new mothers. I’m three months into “pumping exclusively” (but, shhhh, I’m also giving my baby *gasp* formula) and women continue to tell me to “keep trying” breastfeeding. “He could still latch,” they say. “It’s the best!” they say. Well, ladies, for some of us, it’s not the best. And I became a happier, better version of myself once I tuned out everything else and started making the best decisions for *my* family and little guy. And now I’m finally enjoying this thing called motherhood. :)
