4. Remember that breastfeeding is just one part of being a mother
Are you having a hard time coping with not being able to breastfeed? If so, please keep in mind that breastfeeding is just one part of being a mother.
You may not be able to breastfeed, but you can still do many things for your little one. You can still hold him, sing for him, and play with him. You can keep them healthy through regular check-ups and scheduled vaccination. Once they reach 6 months, you can also gradually start them with healthy, solid foods.
Don’t let your guilt stop you from doing other things for your baby and from enjoying your role as a mom.
Breast milk is the best for babies, but not in all situations. Coping with not being able to breastfeed may give you feelings of guilt, but remember that you can still do many things to keep your little one happy and healthy. Focus on these things. If you need more help emotionally and mentally, don’t hesitate to seek medical advice.
