Since I posted earlier this week, my 3 mo. old is now refusing to even try to nurse sometimes. I began block feeding on Monday but usually only 2 rounds of nursing each side. I am not sure if it is helping yet. When my LO does nurse, she is still gulping and squirming. I am trying to nurse her upright and this helps a bit but sometimes she won't nurse at all. Last night, I gave up trying after 45 minutes of screaming and put her to sleep without feeding. I felt so defeated.
Should I go longer stretches of nursing on each side? What about the other side- it gets engorged when I do this?
What can I do when she refuses to nurse?
Thanks to anyone who can help! I never realized how much it means to me to be able to nurse her until I couldn't do it.
