Mum

Do you ever feel trapped as a breastfeeding mum? Last night I just felt touched out. I couldn’t even have my partner cuddle me. Feel like my body isn’t my own any more.

Omg yes!!!! I was like that a lot when my son was small. I expressed and breastfed for seven months. It was a LOT. I wanted a break but I also didn't at the same time. It was weird.

Remember, it's totally your choice - if you feel ready to move to formula or express. Or maybe a little time away for an hour or something would help.
