I had my daughter on Monday the 22nd.. I am trying to breastfeed for the first time with this baby.. I am having some problems I think..
My milk has come in, but its not alot I think.. I pump and get about maybe 2oz. sometimes way less, and that is from both boobs... I try to breastfeed my daughter, but she just wants to fight me all the way and screams and crys and holds her mouth open and reaches from side to side.. She will latch on and suck a few times or more, then falls asleep.. I take my nipple out and she will sleep for a min, but then I will try to wake her up so she can eat more and we start all over again with the crying and fighting.. What does all this mean????
I am so stressed out about it, I am about to go to formula..
She spits up alot has the hickups ALOT, and everytime she farts its a wet one.. yellow with chunks in it.. (tmi, sorry)..
What should I do..
I have a call into my nurse person to help me, but she will have to call me tomorrow.. What can she do that I am not already doing myself..
I want to breastfeed so badly to help with cost of things and cuz it so much more heathy for the baby..
Am I just not producing enough milk or something..
How often can I pump? Like 1-2 hours to get my milk supply up or something??
Please help.. I am at a total loss about all this..
I know alot of you will say dont give up, and I am trying not too, But I am so upsest about all this.. I just sit here and cry cuz I am so stressed about it..
I know I need to calm down and I am working on it.. I take deep breaths when she fights me, and just calm down and just keep trying to get my nipple in her mouth...
I also went and got the nipple guards, they worked alittle bit, but she still fights me when I try to get her to latch on..
