It seems that my frustration is common from reading everyone else's posts. But nonetheless I dont know if I can do this! My daughter is 8 days old and I have been breastfeeding from her birth. In recent days we supplemented a tiny bit with a bottle until my milk came in because she had lost too much weight but she pretty much exclusively feeds by breast and now I think I am able to pump enough during a day that I can supplement her with breast milk via a bottle if needed (I can't pump much more than a half ounce though at a time- is that normal?). The problem is is that she gets so worked up prior to feedings sometimes that I cannot get her to latch on. She bobs her head all around and if I try to firmly push her into the breast it makes it that much worse, I think because she feels restrained and that makes her more angry. So some feedings go LOUSY and take forever especially since I am trying to put her to the breast every 2 hours. I get frustrated and she is screaming her lungs out because she just won't close her mouth. I try EVERY position in those instances and that is when I want to throw my hands in the air. She also started favoring one side, although today I have exclusively tried to feed her initally on her "difficult" side. Any pointers for getting her to close her mouth and to get her past that writhing stage? We even try to take breaks to calm her but the minute I put her back in any breastfeeding position she screams again. Please offer any tips, sometimes I feel like I just can't do this and then I read posts where people have 3 weeks of frustration and I feel like I just want to ENJOY my time with her not stress about every feed!
