My baby and I are in the process of weaning from the nipple shield. She is 5 weeks. I have been using the cross cradle position to wean her, compressing my breast from below and waiting for her to open her mouth before putting my nipple in. Things were going well at first but now she doesn't seem to want to take the breast in very far. She will suck well a few times, then begin to close her mouth until she is hurting my nipple. I have to break the latch most of the time and she is becoming frustrated (as am I). I do have a pretty intense let down and possible oversupply (no doubt from the nipple shield) but even when I start her on the shield and remove it, she seems to behave the same way. When she is feeding I hear a lot of clucking and clicking noises and she clamps down then too. Is this her way of resisting the transition? She gets mad at the breast but she sometimes does this with the shield too. I am beginning to worry that I won't be able to wean her from the shield.
