I'm not sure if I have a real question or just need some support. We had been having a problem with ds becoming extremely fussy while nursing, which the lactation consultant thought was likely oald. So, per her suggestion, I am nursing him twice on the same side, then going to the other side at the next feeding. We started that yesterday. Today he has not slept at all except for little catnaps while nursing, and he has been nursing the whole day. Every time I think he's done, its only minutes before he's got his tongue going again in the feed me motion. And he was completely inconsollable this evening - nothing I tried worked to calm him down. What is going on? I feel like a terrible mother for not knowing if he's starving, gassy, overtired, wants to comfort suck, or what. On top of that, we have guests this weekend, and since he's been fussily nursing all day I can't really do it in front of people, so I've been shut in the bedroom all day with an upset baby while everyone else is outside. I don't know what to do and am so frustrated!
Thanks for listening - my husband doesn't get why I'm upset, which is driving me nuts!
