I am thinking of giving up breastfeeding. Dd won't take a bottle but I assume she will if she is hungry. I am starting to feel depressed as I don't have much time to myself. I love my daughter but really need a bit of my life back. Sorry if I sound selfish but just feel down a lot. I have talked to dh and my dad so can talk about my feelings.

I just don't want to cause dd stress but am starting to lose the real me

She has taken tomee t bottle a few times but now refuses even expressed milk.

Sorry to bother you but just feel worse each day

I am so lucky to have a happy healthy daughter.

Is it possible to carve out a bit of time for yourself without giving up breastfeeding? Have your DH take the baby out for 2-3 hours on a Saturday for example, or start doing an evening class or regular night off.

Also maybe try a few different bottles/teats - I've got on well with the Breastflow ones.
