I dont know which way to turn at the moment, Matilda is 18 months old and only goes to sleep with the boob, on the odd occassion she might fall asleep in the pram or watching a dvd but not very often.
The problem is that my nipples are so very very sore, and Im so very very tired. I get very antsy and flustered and short tempered when she is feeding as she just wont lay still.
My left nipple has a ring of ouch around it, its basically a big circle of grazing, from where her teeth drag on the skin when she sucks as well as a nice graze on the top of it and my right nipple, well just away from it, has a crack/split thats been there for months because it just cant heal, it is very slowly but its still there.
She refuses to let go and I have to tickle her til she laughs and has no choice but to.
I dont know what to do, part of me wants to stop but part of me doesnt, I dont know how Id get her to sleep or comfort her, thats all she knows really and what she wants. But I get so tired and cranky when she feeds.
Can anyone help? Offer advice?
