I tried to breastfeed both of my babies but with my first I did just breast, no formula and I cried and cried and cried and hated myself because I was absolutely positive I wasn’t producing enough but the doctor told me otherwise until about he was 3 months and I expressed my concerns because he was still really small and then they finally gave me permission to supplement with formula and the amount of guilt I felt because I couldn’t produce enough milk to feed him and he was pretty much starving. And with my second baby I knew better so I breastfed and bottle fed and I feel breastfeeding creates a very very close bond with your baby and I had to stop breastfeeding him because I was undergoing surgery and didn’t want him to get the nasty medicine in my milk and I dried up anyways and now I don’t have as close as a bond with him as I’d really really like too and it makes me feel so guilty.

Question: Do you give and would you like to receive supportive comments from strangers? There have been a few times I was out and saw another momma struggling (most recent example was in the grocery store - she had two kids that were just chattering like crazy and eventually she yelled at them that she couldn't think, then you could tell she was embarrassed about losing her cool in public). Sometimes I really want to say "hey, I know its tough, you're doing great". But I never know if it will be well received.
