I am having some struggles with my 9 week old. He was born early (35 weeks) but we have since established a great breastfeeding relationship and only use bottles of EBM if I am away for some reason. However, recently, I developed severe sciatic nerve pain. The nursing has become quite uncomfortable when I am sitting or laying down. Does anyone have any alternate positions to suggest?
Also, he is nursing every 2-3 hours around the clock still. I know this is normal, but I go back to work in a few weeks and don't know how I am going to do it. We don't cosleep, but he is in a pack-n-play next to my bed. I am in pain and exhausted and really stressed about how I am going to make this all work with going back to work. . . When can I expect him to sleep longer stretches in between feedings??? Will it take longer to get there b/c he was premature?
