hello, my name is robyn and i am a 1st time mom of a 10 day old baby girl named kaylin. i am hoping someone here can help me.
please excuse my typing, i am holding the baby and can olny type with one hand LOL
the fist week breast feeding went very well. my nipples were a bit sore and cracked but after applying some lanolin i was a lot better plus the baby was getting latched on a lot better after the first few days of not.
the problem is that the last few days she will not latch on to he left breast and gets really really upset everytime i offer it. she has NO trouble with the right. needless to say the left one is really sore and full. its not that she is not trying cause she is a reaaly eager little eater but she just doesnt get on right and even when she does she pulls away right away screaming. i know there is milk in there cause as this is happening milik is dripping all over her little crying face so i just dont know what to do.
i have tried hot wet dace cloths on it before feeding her and massaging it. as soon as i try her on the right no problem, she is fine and eats away.
i just sterilzed my pump and i was going to try and pump it for now to see if that helps. does anyone have any idea what is wrong and how i can fix it?
thanks for reading
