First time mom here
My baby girl is 6 days old and I have been bfing around the clock the last 3 days but to no avail. I dont feel the 'letdown' everyone talks about but on the 3rd day one breast became really hard...since then soft breasts. Milk comes out when I squeeze them, white and thick but not a steady stream. My baby nurses for over an hour, latches on well, seems to be drinking, burping etc. but then she starts screaming 10 mins later! She also wont sleep for longer than an hour maybe hour and half in btwn nursing. Last night I finally gave her formula in the wee hours of the morning after nursing all night and she drank the whole bottle and then slept for almost 3 hours! Tonight, same story I bf-ed 40 mins and then 40 mins again half hour later, and now finally gave her 3/4 bottle formula. Now shes quiet while my husband holds her.
What am I doing wrong? We cant afford a lactation consulatant right now....any advice?
She made 3 big poos today, yellow and mustardy and is wetting 3-4 times a day.
