Anyone who knows me knows I previously had a crappy bf experience with my DS.
I had my new baby girl yesterday - beyond smitten!!! And the first 5-6 feeds went swimmingly. She latched straight out of theatre, no pain, it was such a sigh of relief.
Then today Ye olde latch issues have hit like a Mack truck without brakes! It's painful and every feed she comes off with my nipple flattened.
I really want to persist because it has started out so well. What do I need to do? Every single attempt has been painful, do I keep feeding as long as I can bear it and hope the next feed we get it right? I am getting great help from midwives and lactation consultants but they seem a bit miffed too...
