Thank you everyone who has been so kind and helpful ... but I just want to crawl in bed and cry. Non-latching DS is making me crazy. He'll be 2 mos. this week.
He has BF a little bit the last couple days, not well, but at least something. Maybe 10 min total if I added it all up. It makes me pull me hair out bc I spend all this effort getting SNS ready, taping it on, taping nipple shield on so he doesn't pull it off, getting pillow, Brest Friend, etc. etc. all ready ... we're ready to go, nipple shield filling with milk so he doesn't get frustrated, baby positioned ... and NOTHING! He cries, pushes away, grabs SNS tube, etc.
I swear, I want to quit and not quit at the same time. I am doing everything I can to create a positive experience at the breast for him and it is WEARING ME OUT. I'm getting tired of thinking about nothing but BF. Yet I want to make this work. HELP!
