Thank you so much for posting this. I had my first child 2 years ago and I had similar issues. I had hardly any milk and so I breast fed and supplemented for 4 months until I figured out I was completely out of milk so I bottle fed from then on. I believe I was under too much stress from trying to deal with a newborn as well as be a caretaker to my grandma who died 5 weeks after my daughter was born. In my case, it was my dr. that made me feel like a jerk as he put it for 'starving my child' and he told me that she had to gain 8 ounces in a week or else. I had no clue what he meant by that so I was terrified that I would lose my child. I went home crying and depressed that I couldn't make enough milk to feed my baby so I started supplementing. She gained her 8 ounces, barely but we will just say that I didn't go back to that dr. I have long since got over the horrible things this dr. said to me but this caused me to make sure my daughter's dr. was one I loved and who loved my daughter. I plan on trying to breast feed my next child but I will not mind if I can't. I know best when it comes to my baby and I will not let someone, anyone make me feel that way again.
