Okay, I am a first time mom. Been breast feeding 14 weeks, no bottles just a paci, which I think may have been a mistake, but I am not sure. Should I take it away if it contributes to a poor latch? Baby is gaining well, (9oz in 2 weeks, current weight 12lbs 3.5oz) but has a poor latch. Was recommened to me to by Dr. Newman, to take Domperidone (via email) for a poor latch. Of course I can't get Domperidone here, so that is another issue, I have started fenugreek though, but I am not sure if I need it. I have no pain when she feeds, but I understand that you can have a poor latch and no pain (I do have "lipstick nipple" instead of "pencil eraser nipple". I also understand that babies can "seem" fine with a poor latch until your milk levels out around 3-4 months at which point the poor latch doesn't support the transfer of milk and you milk levels can go down. My greatest fear is that I will have to stop breastfeeding. I have been so stressed about my percieved problem that I am making myself and my poor husband sick about it AND I have wanted to quit just from the stress--it is just not worth it. I have been in tears for days, and I feel stupid, because she IS gaining, but I dread every feed cause she gets fussy sometimes and WILL not latch well. Also, sometimes she does not seem quite content after a feed, and I just freak out that my baby is still hungry. I often feed in sidelaying, does that position make poor latch more likley? She fights me and hates it if I try to "put her on" the nipple, so I just end up letting her get on anyway she will. I don't know what I am asking for here, just wanted to put it out there. I am guess I am just afraid of getting low milk for having a poor latch and my baby crying and being hungry and there is nothing I can do about it. From what I understand, there is not too much you can do for a poor latch at this point.
