    I'm not really sure of your story but for me ongoing pain while feeding was a symptom of tongue and lip tie. Both my kids had posterior tongue ties that took ages to be properly diagnosed but feeding became much easier (and painless) when I got the ties fixed. Xxx

    Did you end up trying the nipple shield for respite? The hydrogel discs are lovely for soothing pain too. I hope you know you're doing a great job it's not easy xx

    Thanks gingermillie! I did buy the nipple shields but she wouldn't latch on with them. The hydrogel discs helped a lot though and also loading up with Lansinoh.

    Breastfeeding is very different to formula feeding. You can loosely follow a bit of a routine with breastfeeding, but it is of course impossible to monitor quantities and they will feed more under some circumstances but less in others. I found that once they started eating solids the feeds naturally dropped off just slightly. They could last a bit longer.

    Then when I night weaned my DD at 12 months she started sleeping through the night and eating more food. After 12 months the breastfeeding became a much smaller part of her diet and the feeds dropped off naturally until she self weaned at 15 months. I was quite happy to stop feeding at that point.

    At one month it's best to feed on demand to establish your supply properly.
