Hi mamas. My 15 week old LO is fighting me when nursing in a cradle hold for some reason. He's always done this to a degree, but I hadn't noticed how bad it had gotten until we went away this past weekend and I wasn't able to nurse him laying down as much as I do when we're at home. He has a history of fussing at the breast, but when he was younger I always attributed it to my supply problems and slow flow, but now I *know* my milk supply has gone up quite a bit (I can feel it), so I am not sure why he pulls off the breast so much when I am holding him in a cradle position.
I wonder if it's because I have a slower let-down in that position compared to when we're laying in bed together and totally relaxed... is that what it sounds like? Or what? It's hard for me to tell because I can't actually feel let-down...I just watch for his swallows, and I can see more rapid swallows when we're laying down. But he doesn't seem to give it enough of a chance when I'm cradling him.... What should I do?? I can't ALWAYS nurse him laying down!
