Hi! My son is 2 1/2 weeks old. Right from the start he seemed to want to take a long time to nurse..up to an hour. Now we have only 2 modes of wakefullness..crying and nursing. Last night we nursed for over 2 hours
If I try to take him away from the breast before he falls asleep, he cries. It seems to be the only thing that soothes him. My OB said babies typically drain a beast in 10 minutes. So what's he doing the rest of the time?
I now have blocked ducts and am getting very frustrated with the whole thing. How can they be blocked if he is nursing SO much? I'm not getting anything else done..that includes simply eating lunch.
I dont want to give up, but I feel like I'm at my wit's end!
