Just a little background, my LO is 3 months today and he's been breastfed since birth; however, we've used a nipple shield since the beginning and we just recently (last Saturday) weaned him off of it which I'm thrilled about. So obviously, it's like we're starting from scratch - his latch, I'm sure, is all wrong because I'm in some serious pain here. I've called a lactation consultant and she was supposed to come today but she didn't. So all this week, after he nurses to where he comes off himself, he sticks his hand in his mouth...he's been doing this for a couple of weeks now and I don't know if it means he is still hungry or if he is teething. How can I tell the difference?
I put him back on the breast to see if he wants more, but he'll fuss and/or take a few sips and then start squirming.
I'm so confused.
By the way, I just realized I've met my 3 month goal of breastfeeding...onto the next one...6 months.
