My 3 week old has been crying a lot when she tries to latch on to the breast in the cradle hold. When i hold her, she will flail her arms, suck on her fingers, turn her head the other way with her mouth open, squirm and cry loudly. She latches on fine after about 5-10 minutes at most. I dont like to forcefully push her arms back or hold her down so I let her take her time to latch on. I still feel terrible when she still cries like this during each feed. Any advice would be great!
She doesn't cry when we try a reclined infant led breasfeeding position the LC showed us but cant always feed her in that position especially when my breasts feel full and it seems like too much work for her to latch on her own.
