I've had some killer cramping and gas that I thought was going to lead to diarrhea, but nothing much happened. It really hurt though!
Breastfeeding is still a no-go. Went to a special chiropractor and he adjusted him, but it hasn't made a difference with feeding. Granted, I am not trying very often anymore... a couple times a day maybe. He latches and sucks every now and then, but every other time is like he is going through hell or something. I think I am just done. I haven't been able to bond with him at all because of the stress. I feel very distant from him.
To be honest, pumping isn't helping things either. I can't seem to stick to a schedule because I have 5 kids and something always comes up. 15 minutes doesn't seem like a long time to sit and pump, but it is when it's every 3 hours and the baby is needy. At this point, I am thinking I will pump whenever I can and eventually, when I dry up, I will make homemade formula with goat milk. Not ideal and it's a bummer, but I have to let go at some point. Hopefully the guilt will fade. Hopefully things will be better next time.
