Hello! I'm currently nursing my 8 month old and in the last several weeks it has become a painful experience (not as bad as the early days!) ... he is either sucking on the end of the nipple (probably the remnants of a poor latch that I never corrected) and pulling his head back and / or pinching my breast with his free hand while he nurses. This happens more often during day feeds when he seems to be not as interested in getting down to business. The result is sore breasts / nipples after I feed him... and I feel like I'm not enjoying the experience as much as I can (very different from my first son!).
Second, how many jars of food, oatmeal/ rice cereal are you all giving your 8 month old? I know it varies depending on the baby, but I wanted to check... My little guy is not so little - approx 19 - 20 pounds (he was 9' 10 oz at birth).
Help?? THANK YOU!
