Re: Please Help..I am so frustrated I could cry :(
Welcome to the forum! I have some questions for you, which may help us understand how to help you better.
How many times a day does your baby nurse? (Approximately).
Is she fed on demand, or on a schedule?
Is she getting a lot of bottles? How many per day does she get, and how much milk is in them?
How would you rate your milk supply- normal, or overabundant? Do you ever see milk spray from the breast when baby pulls off, do you have strong letdowns, does baby ever choke, cough, splutter, gag, click, or cluck when nursing? Do you often feel engorged or full?
Pulling off the breast is a very common behavior. In general, the best way to deal with it is to shelve the pump and bottles and just nurse, teaching baby that she MUST find a way to deal with whatever is frustrating her. In cases of oversupply, changing your nursing position to something more reclined may help. And trying some different positioning may be warranted regardless of your supply level, just to see if there's one that baby likes better.
