We just got home from the hospital with our Baby #2 - yay!!
and I was much better with breastfeeding in the hospital! I started right in the recovery room (after my c-section) and my DS latched on right away (unlike my DD)
He couldnt latch on to my flat/inverted nipple at first so I BF from the other and pumped that one...but by the end of the hospital visit he was BFing from both. BUT...
as the days went on not only was the initial latch extremely painful, the first min or so were also painful...now that I am home for the first day, the last few feeds (the WHOLE session) have been extremely painful - worse than my worse contractions
And He will not nurse from the one I origianlly pumped the first two days because he comes up with a mouthful of blood
My questions are:
-Could I poss have thrush?
-Is it possible to just breastfeed from just one breast?
-I read that I should pump for a few days if I cant take the Bfing due to pain, is it ok to introduce the bottle so early? (my DD went back and forth from EBM to breast with ease - I am hoping my DD can do the same)
My hormones are all out of control and hysterical crying during a BF session is not what I had in mind..you think Baby #2 I'd be a pro!!
