Here's a long story short. My daughter had severe latching issues, and I have been EP'ing. In the hospital I seen 2 lactation consultants. The first literally never even came closer than the end of our bed, and basically just said she didn't know what to do, and gave us a video to watch. The second one we seen tried to latch her once, then just brought me a breast pump. So I started EP'ing.. I tried for 2 weeks to get her to latch after we left the hospital, and it never happened(she is 9 weeks now), until today. Today DD finally latched, and nursed for about 20 minutes, it was magical. So I tried the rest of the day, she never latched again. Every time I put her to the breast, she screams and flails her arms/legs.
I feel worse than I did before. I felt like a failure to begin with, then I got a small
glimmer of hope today, only to have my hopes again kicked to the dust.
