Not a lot better, but I had a good night’s sleep last night, which has helped.  And though my mood is a bit down, I know that it is just a dip – there will be ups and downs but I believe that the downs won’t last forever.

Over the past couple of days I have been involved in a debate about breast feeding, and whether some women really don’t have enough milk.  This is a subject that has been a very sensitive one for me, as I felt for years that I had ‘failed’ to breast feed the boys – I even had one of them in hospital, diagnosed as Failure To Thrive’ as a 6 week old, exclusively breast fed baby.  I beat myself up for years.

But this debate has felt different to me.  I am not seeing things said there as an implication that I am a failure for not breast feeding.  It feels as if I have finally moved on from this – and that is a positive thing.
