Although we haven't had terrible obstacles, we have had a tough time since we left the hospital. My DS latched right on seconds after birth and nursed like a champ.... Then we came home
We have struggled with oversupply constantly (I block nurse to alleviate, but it comes back within in days), forceful let down (I feed reclined, pinch and pull back breast while feeding at the advice of a lactation consultant), and distractions constantly while nursing (I have a two year old with jealousy issues). All if this combined has really thrown him off. He's even reluctant to nurse he chokes, cries, unlatches. Once I calm him down he will attempt to nurse again and then one of the other million factors that have made this challenging will happen. He's gaining well and output is fine- I know that is a blessing!
I had such a great nursing relationship with DD. When will this get better?! Has anyone else ever felt like this?! My husband is awesome support: reads the laleche site while I cry to help me, he has called lactation for me, and cheers me on daily!
I have every reason to make this work- it's just not
