Re: Feeling so sad about baby fussing during BFing
I can empathasize completely. Although our day feedings go well, and there are LOTS of em, nighttime has been rough (DD is 9 weeks). Lots of fussing, crying, release, re-latch, vigorous painful sucking, choking (too fast), whining/bobbing (too slow), thrashing, scratching, passing out for 5 or 10 min, I pass out lured into a false sense of security then her lungs wake me up - it's exhausting! When I google an issue or look here or on Kelly mom, it's always normal and a zillion people are going thru the same thing. The only discomforts i notice that drive some of this are congestion discomfort (worse at night) and painful gas. So hopefully with you it's just standard infant stuff. I keep telling myself with just a few weeks maternity leave left, I'd rather be exhausted with her than not have her at all. Although I do wish I could clear her congestion and help her gas.
We co-sleep, which is good in that I'd otherwise be running to the nursery 100x/night but on the downside our bed is like the (not so) Fun House. Maybe House of Horrors?
