Ooooh a post just for me...I feel really special!!!
It didn't go!! I sat down with hubby last night and had a bit of a heart to heart after he caught me in tears (again) as I couldn't get Abbie to latch on and she was getting all upset and frustrated, and agreed to give it up.
I was really upset at this decision but at the same time relieved. He said he hated seeing me upset over it and it was obviously distressing Abbie too. I was dreading telling the breastfeeding people as I thought they would try to badger me into continuing, but they were really supportive of my decision.
Thank you for asking though

Its a relief once you make the decision, you've done so well perservering this long, and I'm sure now you've switched both you and Abbie will be much happier, plus you can kick OH out of bed in the mornings now to do the early feed while you have a lay in
Just a tip, though, might not be wise to go cold turkey, your boobs might end up as hard as rocks otherwise, you might need to express off a little every now and then so they don't get engorged x
