Re: Fussiness while nursing
Congrats on your baby girl!
Do you think it's a fast let down that's frustrating her? Sorry, I didn't understand from your post. If she's pulling off the breast or choking/gagging during let down, try unlatching her, and allowing it to spray into a clean towel or burp cloth, then latching her back on. OALD is a common problem, and she'll learn to deal with it as she gets bigger.
I have a 2 week old, and he's been fussing at the breast as well, much like what it sounds like your dd does. He'll latch, then pull the nipple, cry, unlatch and then be rooting like he wants to nurse... I'm not sure what the deal is, but usually if I give him a few minutes, try to burp him, change his diaper, rock him, and then latch him back on, he seems to do a little better.
Sorry I don't have any grand advice for you, I just wanted to let you know that I'm in the same boat!
