Hello, I am new here. This is my first child and she is almost eight weeks. I have had great difficulty with breastfeeding so far and several hurdles have almost ended it, but I know how important it is so I have pulled through and made it this far. I couldn't have imagined something like breastfeeding could be difficult, but it has been! Things have greatly improved compared to the fact she used to scream at EVERY feeding, which was extremely stressful. She was diagnosed with reflux so we have been keeping her upright almost all the time. I have found that the only position I can nurse her in that doesn't end with her choking is lying down, and she has been drastically improved since I have been only nursing that way. We also have been giving her Gerber Soothe probiotic drops and I think that has helped as well. She is gaining weight well. Anyway... My problem is that sometimes when she is nursing I can hear a squeak sound and then air gurgles down her throat into her stomach, and when it gets there she pulls off and starts crying/screaming. After I burp her and calm her, usually we can finish the feed ok but we have to start all over. She still occasionally coughs/sputters within the first few minutes as well. She feeds fast & furious, never longer than 10 minutes, but has always been that way. I have had a consultant check the latch, tongue, letdown and nipples, and all is within normal limits. I feel like her latch may be shallow, but after eight weeks shouldn't it have improved? Thank goodness it does not happen every time, but it is my last remaining hurdle to overcome. Hopefully as she grows, a larger mouth will solve this, but it is making breastfeeding difficult and I want it to be the happy bonding experience it should be.
