I didn't realize how emotional breast feeding was. my ds no.3 keeps refusing to nurse. he is quite clearly hungry and 'roots' a lot, but the minute he comes anywhere near me or my breast he screams. My ds no.2 went on nursing strike at 11 months and I never got him back so this is bringing back all kinds of memories. I'm a total mess. I really don't want to give up, and I hope I can post a positive story on here one day but at the moment, I've had enough.
I am tackling OALD/Oversupply and keep getting blocked ducts (almost daily). I'm currently sitting at the computer shivering again with a blocked duct.
can anyone offer any words of wisdom? why are there so many emotions attached to breastfeeding? I read that with blocked ducts you get teary? so I'm sure it's not PND.
My little man is also sleeping really well at night so I don't have that as an excuse.
thank you for any kind words.
