    Default Crying and screaming when milk supply is low, HELP!!!

    I have a 3 week old baby girl and when she nurses she does great as long as my breast are really full, if they are flimsy and not exploding she just screams and cries and won't latch on but for a second then scream then latch on for a second and scream. I feel so bad cause I don't know what to do. Every time my breast aren't exploding with milk she does this and doesn't eat. I need suggestions and any help possible! I really want to continue to nurse but Im feeling discouraged and want to give up at times.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Questions for you:
    - Are you breastfeeding exclusively, no bottles, no pacifiers?
    - How has baby's diaper output and weight gain been so far?
    - Is there a period of the day, perhaps in the later afternoon/evening, when fussiness increases?
    - How many times in a 24 hour period does your daughter generally nurse?
    - Poops: mostly yellowish and seedy/curdy, or more frequently greenish/brownish and watery?
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
