Now that we're finally off the nipple shield we've ran into an interesting problem. I've been bringing my baby to bed with me (no judgement please) for nightime nursing and so I'm nursing him laying down- I end up falling asleep every single time... and he'll sleep with me the entire night and I just keep my top down for easy latching.
Well.... now he has a hard time nursing throughout the day............we used to do the cradle position when he was on the shield, sometimes even without the shield he'll nurse fine- but about 75% of the time- he'll latch on..suck suck suck- look freaked out- pop off and start screaming. I'm thinking maybe it's an over active let down? I've tried laid back nursing and he wont have it..but- if I get the boppy out- and lay him on it and just kind of support him on it without holding him in my arms- he'll nurse..I think b/c it's mimicing the bed?
I don't know- but it makes feeding him in public really hard.............. b/c I can't just lay down on the floor....
Any suggestions on what the problem could be?
