Bub is 4.5 days old and she's been a great feeder thus far for the most part - she's only 30 grams off her birth weight already. We've got the right side sorted, good latch etc but the left is a bit of a disaster zone... It's hard to get her to latch properly, so our attempts to do so have left me with a grazed nipple and it absolutely kills now.
I know it will get better but just looking for some words of advice for those who've dealt with similar... I have a huge supply so am also trying to manage serious engorgement, so don't want to pump in addition to feeding as I don't need to open the flood gates further.
Never had any trouble with my son, when did other's start to get into a rhythm after initial feeding hiccups?
Baby blues hit today and so I'm feeling fairly sorry for myself and wondering what I've gotten myself into!
