I kind of have two problems. One could posibly be caused by the other i'm not sure. My Daughter Monica had alot of difficulties starting to breastfeed. We finally got through but the latch isn't quite perfect yet....we're working on it.
Monica was a really good eater for the few days after we got the hang of things. Sucking well and mostly emting both sides at one feeding. Now the past few days she screams and acts like she's hungry only to just hold my breast in her mouth or soothe suck at the most. Then she falls asleep (no matter how we try to keep her awake) not having really eaten at all. Then she wakes up 10-30min later because she's hungry. What can I do to break this nasty cycle?
The other problem is, I HATE the sensation of the breastfeeding. It kind of tickles and grates on my nerves. Especially the soothe sucking! I find myself wanting to scream out of sheer torture, dreading feedings. I didn't find it like this before. Could it be her latch? Could it be fatigue? With this nasty cycle I've gotten virtually no sleep. Or is it my sensetive nerves and i'll never like it? What do I do? I love my daughter so much and I would really like her to be breastfed but Can I stand the torture? HELP!
