I've been on here complaining about my difficulties nursing my fussy baby and in the early days everyone said the fussiness would go away by 3-4 months but it hasn't really got much better at 4 months and nursing her is getting even harder!
For most of January my forceful letdown problem seemed like it had got better but now all of a sudden I am getting engorged sometimes again and she is popping off when the milk first lets down more often. She still has a lot of gas and seems bothered by it.
She is getting up to nurse every 2hrs at night most nights (if she does a longer stretch it's the 1st stretch then up every 2hrs after) but during the day she cries when I try to nurse her more than every 3hrs. Actually she just cries when I try to nurse her in general! It seems like we are rarely ever in sync.
I have a hard time getting her to nurse for more than 5 minutes even when she's sleepy and when she's awake it's virtually impossible. She will act hungry, root and put her hands in her mouth but refuse to nurse. One time I went out and pumped for about 30min and she drank the whole bottle so now I keep thinking I should just try pumping and feeding her , I am so frustrated!
