So LO is 4.5 months old and I guess from what I have been reading and noticing that being quite distracted is normal at this stage. The problem is that I think my milk supply may have dropped a bit. She seems to only nurse until the letdown ends and then starts tugging like mad at my nipples. I also noticed she doesn't seem to open as wide, she likes to slurp my nipple into her mouth. I'm thinking this combo has led to poor milk transfer? She was gaining 2 lbs a month but at her 4 month checkup she had only gained 2lbs in two months. The doc said this was normal for weight gain to slow but I thought that was around 6 months? It wasn't my usual dr.
At night she is constantly yanking on my nipples and it hurts! They're bruising!
Anything I can do?
