ok I have two problems
....My daughter is 8 weeks old and I have just weaned her from the nipple shield (thank God!) However, she wants to be fed every hour and a half which only gives me an hour break between feedings. In order to keep my sanity, I have been giving her 1, sometimes 2 bottles a day usually before nap or bedtime so that she can sleep for a couple hours straight. I really dont want to rely on the bottle so much but it seems that no matter how long I breastfeed her, she's still hungry a short while later! Any suggestions on how to keep the feedings at least 2.5-3 hours apart?
Also, my breasts seemed to have become very saggy since getting pregnant and in order to keep my nipple comfortably in her mouth, I need to do the "nipple sandwich" to keep her from pulling off or just sucking on my nipple. I feel like the breast is a big water balloon only 25% full! I feel like I can never be comfortable breastfeeding because I have to use so many muscles just to keep her on there! I at least want to be able to breastfeed without getting a cramp! Also, when I release my hand, my breast covers her nose no matter what! Any ideas on how to get into a position where I can breastfeed with ease?
Any help would be appreciated!
