I'm new to motherhood and I find bfing so hard and frustrating for both myself and my 3 week old. The first week, I thought we were doing well, despite sore nipples and engorgement pain; he seemed to adjust to it well which was all that mattered to me. But last week, he started having crying fits during feedings. I thought he was just fussy and it would be okay by the next feeding. But it's been a week now and he still has the crying fits during every single feeding.
To be more specific, he latches on for 2 minutes and cries, then latches on for a few more minutes and cries. Sometimes he'll do better after a diaper change or after a burp, but sometimes I've already tried those things and he still cries. Is this normal or what can I do to help him?
