21. Supplementation isn't the end of the world
We can be way too hard on ourselves as moms. If baby isn't getting enough milk from you, supplementing with formula doesn't automatically mean you'll stop breastfeeding. In fact, it may allow you to relax as you build supply.

With my first daughter, we had to supplement despite efforts to bring my milk in faster. While I was disappointed at the time, we only had to do it for a few days and it ended up having zero impact on our long-term breastfeeding relationship.
