Re: Does this pattern sound familiar to anyone?
I have to nurse my son - even now that he's 2 - before changing his diaper. You will figure it out. You have a passionate baby, which will be a really good thing when you have breastfeeding under control. Do you think the spit up was from being so worked up and then eating too quickly? Have you tried to dream feed? What I might consider is once she starts stirring as if she might wake, I would lay down next to her and let her latch in her sleep, then let her wake on the breast. It might calm you both down until your letdown and her temperament calm a bit.
