Well.... My last forum was titled "I decided" or something like that. I had made the decision to stick with BFing and meant it. I'm NOT giving up but I still can't get Keiara to stay latched on and it's all my fault she's trying so hard and it's breaking my heart....... And also driving me insane....... When I first offer her my nipple I have to kind of pinch it or flatten it so that she can latch on but she will only stay latched for about 4 to 8 minutes (some times longer, some times shorter. it varies) I can tell she wants to continue nursing so I will offer her the other side only to get the same results I'm pretty sure I have flat nipples and I have huge breast but she gets very upset and, to me, it's like she's not getting any milk after a few minutes on each side. I say that because she will press her whole face into my boobs and then squeeze them with both hands and I can just tell she's getting mad and tired of trying. It's so frustrating and I just cry with her because I feel like I'm going to have to stop BFing before I lose my mind. Please, I will try ANY THING! ANYTHING AT ALL, IF Y'ALL CAN JUST HELP! Is there some thing I can do to make my nipples "not flat" or some thing I can do to help her latch on. She won't take a nipple shield. We started off with that after the second or third feed in the hospital but she started refusing it after about 3 1/2-4 months of age. If you have flat nipples, what did you to do fix the latch on problem? I will be thankful for any advice at all.
