When is b'fing supposed to get easier? My LO is 8 weeks and is giving me a run for my money.
I can't seem to wean him off of the nipple shield.
I am a poor pumper, I'm lucky to get 1 oz at a time between both sides.
He constantly falls asleep while nursing and is near impossible to wake up. I put him down, and he will stay quiet anywhere from 5 ins to an hour.
He cries and pulls himself off of the breast constantly, or he just plays with my nipple. He has taken to biting down and moving his head side to side lately - ouch!
He will nurse sometimes for 2 hours and still not seem satisfied. I have been taking fenugreek and just added blessed thistle. I normally end up giving him a bottle of formula after giving him tha pathetic amount of EBM I have.
I am so frustrated that I am about to give up. What am I doing wrong? I don't see other mothers going through this around me. What's wrong with me?
