Past couple of days I have been a human pacifer. Not that I really mind EXCEPT for the fact that he has lately begun to tug and shake his head while attached. Never happens when he is nursing - only when he is comfort sucking and the past two days he has been comfort sucking for almost 12 straight hours. Making my nipples VERY VERY sore and I dont know what else I can do - he isnt sleeping during the day very long at all even though I have been trying everything I can think of. We havent found a paci he likes yet.
It is causing some problems with the hubby - he is convinced that Gabe is starving and I should supplement him. What he doesnt realize is that there is a difference in his latcha nd his suck when he is just at the breast for comfort. His diaper output and his weight gain is significant (10lbs already - thats over 3 lbs in a month!) so I know he is getting enough. Just really dont know what to do about hte painful tugs and shakes.
