My little one is 12 days old. We are great at breastfeeding during the day, but at night it is horrible.
I have her in a bassinet next to my bed, with Dad sleeping on the couch!!
She is so hard to latch on! I have tried laying on my side using the "nursing nest". I try to sit up and use my boppy. I even have a "my breast friend" pillow and tried that, it takes her 20 minutes to latch on, and then another 20 minutes of feeding on each side! I can nap now during the day, but I only have 7 weeks of maternity leave left. I need to get her better at night, so we can both sleep!!
Any suggestions. I am getting so engorged during the day, I have to pump twice. I really did not want to start her on expressed bottles untill closer to when I had to go back to work, but Dad might be having to give her a bottle during the night soon to give me a break!!
Thanks for any help!!
