My son is 4 days old and sometimes when it is time for him to nurse he will start to latch take like two sucks and scream. We do this over and over for like 30 minutes to 2 hours. I thought maybe I had too much milk because that is a problem for me so I pumped and then tried to nurse. It didn't help I don't know if I need to pump more or if I'm not doing something right. I know we get it right sometimes because other times he will latch right on and actively nurse for 15 to 30 minutes without letting go. I'm pretty new to this, while this is my second I only got to nurse my first for 9 days before I became too sick to carry on. HELP! please?! I haven't been able to find a lactation consultant near me and the nearest LLL is almost an hour away.
thanks for any suggestions
