So, today started out GREAT. I nursed LO for 40 minutes early this morning; pain-free; without her protesting (or, rather, without any protesting that nursing in motion couldn't solve). About three hours later, I nursed her again for 40 minutes; pain-free; protest free. Then again a few hours later, for 10 minutes; and I started to rejoice. Then again for 50 minutes, and I wanted to throw a party. We've never had a day like this before.
But now, it's all gone downhill. I started nursing LO at 16:05. An hour later, she was still nursing, but drifting off to sleep. I broke the suction to see if she wanted to eat more or to sleep, and she wanted to eat more, so of course I let her. About ten minutes later, it started to get painful. In total, I nursed her for an hour and fifty minutes; with just over an hour of that being pain-free.
First of all, I have no idea why it suddenly became painful. I would understand if it was right after I broke the latch, but it wasn't: it was ten minutes after she re-latched.
But the far bigger problem is that she's STILL eating. When I handed her to DH, she was screaming and shaking her head from side to side, and turned her face to his chest: she was definitely still hungry. I've just nursed her for nearly two hours and apparently it's done nothing; and I'm in pain; so I asked him to give her some formula. She just had 4oz. DH followed all the suggestions I've found on here before: he paused frequently; waited long enough between pauses to determine whether she was still hungry or just protesting; he offered her a pacifier and her thumb; nothing. All she wanted was food.
What the is going on here? I know I've posted about this before, but I feel like this is getting worse. TWO HOURS?
