It seems that I continue to have issues with breastfeeding my one month old! Although we have come a long way, it seems new problems keep arising. We are mostly breastfeeding ok but sometimes use a shield. The past few days my babe has started crying hysterically when he's feeding and it's not because he has to burp or anything I can figure out. So, out of sheer frustration and not knowing what else to do, I use the nipple shield and that seems to solve the problem-he stops crying and starts eating. Does anyone have ANY idea why this is?? I think it could be because my nipple doesn't seem to get hard enough, but I just am completely confused.
