Should I not feel disappointed and cheated that she didn't nurse me because of such a stupid, trivial reason? Am I just being selfish?
Apperiantly no one mentioned to her about growth spurts. She even suggested to me when my youngest was 2-3 weeks old and I was complaining about being a cow that I should give him formula so he would sleep.
In my mom's defense, she is the most selfish person I've ever met. I just have to believe that she did the best she could. I'm an intelligent, well-rounded adult with two beautiful breastfed babies. So she didn't screw-up to badly
Not to mention there was so little support from families or society!! No internet to make instant help available, few if any lactation consultants.....
So I'm not saying you're not entitled to your feelings, but try to remember the societal context she was operating in.
