  1. Re: 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    Things have gotten a lot better, but I'm still having some issues. The baby isn't fighting at the breast anymore, and I think my oversupply is mostly resolved. I'm not getting as engorged as often....
  2. Re: 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    It sounds good to me to hear that decreasing supply will indeed solve some of the issues I'm having.

    The letdown pain while I'm nursing on the other breast is in both breasts. Sorry if I was...
  3. Re: 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    Ok so I went to the LC yesterday afternoon, and the overall takeaway seemed to be that this is just the way things are and they aren't likely to get better.

    She told me to do block feedings to...
  4. Re: 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    Yesterday was better. I did get some sleep and got away from the baby for a while and had some cookies and a milkshake. I pumped more than usual and got some relief from the constant feeling of...
  5. Re: 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    I spent most of yesterday evening in tears, the baby and I just crying at each other, and now the middle of the night. I think going to the LC made things worse because now that I have an idea about...
  6. Re: 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    It's hard for me to believe that my breast size has nothing to do with breastfeeding. I gained a cup size during pregnancy and another (or two more depending on the bra sizing) when my milk came in....
  7. Re: 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    I went to the LC yesterday and I guess it was somewhat helpful but not a panacea. I found out he was indeed latching poorly, and also found out how hard it is to get him to latch better. I don't know...
  8. Re: 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    While feeding overnight, I was looking especially for the things you mentioned and noticed that the very tip of the nipple was white, just for a minute after taking it out of his mouth, then it...
  9. Re: 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    Also, I have trouble getting comfortable in the side-lying position. What do you do with your bottom arm? It seems like it's in the way or getting crushed by my body or the baby. I usually need to...
  10. Re: 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    Thanks for confirming the oversupply diagnosis! It is good to at least know what the problem is!

    It's good to know that those laidback positions don't mean all the way on your back! I tried a...
  11. 7 week old fighting at the breast, short feedings, pain

    My baby will be 7 weeks old tomorrow, he's only had breast milk. He's been a strong sucker with great feeding instincts from day one. I've had nipple pain throughout the entire time, but it was worse...
