We are having a strange breastfeeding issue. My 10 day old DD seems to be resisting every time I feed her. Sometimes it is worse than others but basically she will show signs of being hungry then I go to feed her and she starts crying. Gets herself all worked up and won't nurse. IF I can get her to calm down, she can latch on and eat relatively nicely but it is a struggle every single time. I am not overfeeding her (if that's possible) it is every 3 hours or so, many times a lot longer.
I feel like I have tried everything...changing positions, moving to a quieter room, trying to wait until she "decides" to nurse, etc. But it has been the same thing almost since the beginning.
She started at 8lbs 10 oz, was down to 8lbs 3 oz at four days, back up to 8lbs 5 oz at nine days. So she is gaining back, but a bit slowly. I feel like she is only gaining at all because I am forcing her to eat!
Anyone know what could be going on? I don't remember anything like this with my son and I am really at my wits end...I mean whats up with the hungry baby who refuses to eat??? UGH!
