My bf-ing has been rocky so far, but was certainly improving recently. Was feeling positive about it all then yesterday was a nightmare. Gave LO (9 weeks) his feeds, all ok til about 5pm. Then i notice he's putting his fist in his mouth. Start to worry he might still be hungry but feed him throughout the evening at relatively short intervals. Would cry every time I stopped, with cries getting more distressed as eve progresses. By 9 he's distraught - we give him a bottle (120 mls) and put him back on the breast but still crying terribly. Partner gives him another bottle, by which stage I am distraught and feeling so inadequate. He cries until he finally goes to sleep. This isn't the first time this has happened, but I was so unprepared for it as I honestly thought feeding had gone well.
I just don't understand why I can't satisfy my little man. Latch is good, switch fed so i had lots of let downs yesterday, and I thought things were going well. How can my LO get so hungry when I feed him so often .
