I am about to go crazy -- I don't know what I'm doing wrong, any help would be wonderful!
My 9-week-old nurses wonderfully in her night/early morning feedings, however nursing during the day is exhausting and I'm about to lose my mind. Most feedings last 1.5-2 hours and she is discontent the whole time! She latches for about 5 minutes, then pulls off and on, arches her back, or wails with the nipple still in her mouth. She keeps latching on and off, waving her head around like she's trying to find the nipple, latches, then pulls off crying. Sometimes I break down and give her milk that I've expressed and she will usually take it (other times she swirls it around in her mouth w/ her tongue). I know she is still hungry because she'll smack or chew her fingers and will not go to sleep. It's like she needs a break for a half an hour after feeding, because after a long period of fussiness and/or disinterest, she'll finally re-latch, suck awhile, and fall asleep (and she sleeps for several hours, so she must have gotten enough milk to last her). Is there anything I can do to help her stay latched and not get fussy? Why does she eat fine in the middle of the night and not during the day?
