I just returned to work two weeks ago and I am having trouble breastfeeding my 4 month old DD. She is so fussy at my breast (except through the night when she's half asleep). I used to have issues with OALD and she's acting similar to that but I think it's low supply or delayed letdown instead but don't know how to distinguish?? After a lot of work, she might finally latch on but sometimes she gets fussy the minute I put her in position to feed. She sucks a few times, and starts fussing/arching away and sometimes I can get her back on and she'll eat a little and then stop. I walk around with her, lay down with her - and she just cries and cries. I spend my entire morning, lunch hour and evening just trying to get her to eat. I can tell she's hungry - and sometimes she'll finally latch on and stay for a while but she doesn't seem satisfied. I finally leave for work, and dad needs to feed her with the bottle within 15 minutes of me leaving. How can I determine the problem - OALD, low supply or DL? or maybe acid reflux that just happens to coincide with my return to work?? It's very disheartening because I want the little time we have together to be positive, and instead I feel like she's really unhappy with me. It makes leaving for work even harder.
Thank you for any help you might offer!!
