unfortunately i think this is it. for a month now DD has only nursed over night and i have been pumping during the day bc everytime we try to BF shes entirely too distracted and only getting worse. now the past few days she wont even nurse at night. im so disappointed in myself but this has been one of the hardest most stressfull things in my life since

Don't be hard on yourself, as Dana said you did a great job in a stressful situation. Your baby is lucky to have you for a mom!

We are still here to provide any support you need.

I'm so sorry things didn't work out for you as planned. The amount of breastmilk you've already provided to baby so far has been valuable and will be continue to be valuable. You've done an amazing job in a very stressful situation! Kudos to you!
