I wish we could have stuck with prefolds and covers, but both my husband and I hated how they didn’t keep Luke dry, and since you can’t as easily tell when he was wet, even if we changed him every hour he was sitting soaked in pee for some amount of time.
I’m guessing pockets with microfiber inserts are better for keeping him dry?

It may seem like a pain now but you’ll look back and won’t seem like that long at all. You can do it

Don’t feel bad. He won’t hate you for it. But if you want to keep going then do it! I know you can, it just takes more effort now.
You can do it! It’s hard to think long term right now, just keep going one day at a time!
If your supply doesn’t dip too badly, you may be able to bf and he can have formula when you work
Thanks so much for the encouraging words ladies. I know I need to keep on this path so I am going to keep trying. I think I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by it because I’ve been some form of pregnant, ttc, or breastfeeding since September 2011 and that is such a long time to share my body with my child. Luke needs me now though, so here’s hoping I can keep breastfeeding for as long as Luke needs it. Who knows, maybe my husband will get a rad new job and I can stay home more.
The older Luke gets, the more I feel like I want to stop breastfeeding at 6 months. I feel really selfish about it too.
I don’t hate it, but it’s less enjoyable than when he was little. He’s frequently distracted and sometimes it’s a real struggle to get him to eat good.
Also I’m not a stay at home mom so I have to pump which has become such a
tiresome burden. I just wish I could eliminate the pumping.
Someone encourage me to keep going please. I want to do best by Luke and I know that’s ebf for as long as possible. :/
