ladies pls help.
i sit here with terribly sore nipples. my little girl won't sleep unless she's latched on. she was a good co-sleeper until recently. i don't know what has happened. she's always taken long to nurse down and "pop"off ....now it's taking two hrs for bed and she's asleep for 5-10 minutes before she is searching for my nipple again. i am officially a human pacifier and it's getting worse every day. i can't sleep when she's constantly searching for my breast. If i don't sooth her with my breast-she cries. she was at least last week nursing and then sleeping 3 hrs before needing me again. in desperation i've tried a pacifier-no luck.
we think she might have a mild case of reflux and is terribly gassy (despite my diet being void of any gas producing foods (no chocolate or cows milk either) she's tooting and waking with gas pains often (i can feel the rumbles and gas popping on the side of her belly) I can only think that the constant sucking helps the gas pressure but I'm tired-way over tired and all sucked out!
sleepless and all nursed out in Maine
