I have a beautiful 16 day old dd. She was born at 36+6 by c-section and after a couple of days initially of feeding trouble whilst we both learnt she has been feeding great. Until the last couple of days.
She got oral thrush and developed an aversion to my right breast where she wouldn't latch at all, we treated the thrush and got maybe 24 his of good feeds. Now she has started playing up on both breasts, after fussing she latches and gives a couple of half hearted sucks and then pulls off and screams. This can happen for over an hour and is now happening at every feed. It is breaking my heart and I am so close to giving up but desperately don't want to.
We have tried different holds and positions, tried feeding her at her early hungry signs, tried waiting for her to cry first, expressed some milk first and tried sort of pumping the breast once she latches to help flow until let down and nothing seems to help
