Breastfeeding: When Determination Is Not Enough

I’m writing this article for a number of reasons, but mainly because I want to share my story.  I don’t want people to think I’m not in favor of breastfeeding, because that’s far from the truth.  But I want to share my experience in hopes that maybe it will help someone, someone like me, who needs to hear that it is okay to use a combination of breastmilk and formula (it doesn’t have to be all or nothing) and it’s okay to stop breastfeeding.  Do what works for you and just feed your baby.
