My DS is 6 days old, my milk has been in since day 3. Our bfing journey has been going beautifully so far (well, easier than it did with my DD), but I'm feeling like my boobs are letting me down.
The left has gone quite soft, even in between feeds, and he no longer spends as much time on it, what time is spent on it is often pulling himself off the nipple and searching for it again, and falling asleep (and stopping sucking) after 5-10 minutes.
The right just HURTS to bf from, and he can spend up to half hour on it, pull himself off and still be hungry (which then leads to the stuffing around on the left).
I gave up bf with my DD at 1 week, and I'm seriously considering the same this time, I just can't seem to keep up with what he wants, and my nipples just hurt so much.
According to midwives at the hospital, our attachment is perfect, and it felt perfect... Up until yesterday. Now things just seem to be going wrong.
