Re: p.m.feedings-screaming on breast- help!
My LO is king of screaming during nursing. It does get better but you have to play detective. The evening timing sounds like the 'fussy' period and you might have to be creative at that time.
In LO's case most of it is gas and I'm in the process of figuring out what in my diet makes it worse. So far I know dairy and maybe chocolate. I use mylicon drops when the gas is bad and I see my LO screaming and farting while BF'ing. My pedi also reassured me the gas gets better at 6-8 weeks when they stop swallowing so much air.
If Logan is just freaking out while I'm trying to nurse him we take a 2 minute break and I hold him tight and talk to him until he settles. Then we try again.
Don't give up on BF'ing even if your baby is screaming; I know how scary it is. With just a little trial and error you will be back on track.
