My daughter is 7 weeks old on Thursday (born 06/10/2011)
I breastfed for first few days but then she was bottle fed EBM until 26 Oct when she went back to beong EBF.
I'm starting to worry she doesnt latch properly. Her bottom & top lip ony seems to curl out sometimes though usually it doesnt hurt when she's feeding after initial let down has occured. (My let down is too fast for her to cope with so she tends to adopt shallow latch to clamp down on nipple to slow it down so it hurts when she does this)
She is gaining weight (born 7lb 15oz - now 10lb 4oz) but seems to be dropping off the line on the charts in the books.
I'm getting really worried & even contemplating stopping BF cos it's stressing me out
How do I know she's latching properly & getting enough? Or will I never know?xx
ETA: Night times her latch is baf, think this is due to ending up slightly engorged on night & her not being able to cope with fast flow & size of breast... can this be fixed? or will it work itself out eventually??
