As most of you know MJ has been giving me a bit of greif lately with the boob & now its gotten so bad i'm in tears whilst feeding her
She refuses to attach properly. I've tried different positions, taking her off & trying again but nothing is working. Basically she wont take a mouth full, all she's doing is taking in the nipple nothing else. Its like she cant handle the feeling of it all being in her mouth. If I try to push her in closer she pulls back even more stretching it.
Is there anything I can do to ease the pain & teach her how to attach again? I used to use a sheild in the beginning, should I maybe get that back out?
I went to the clinic this morning & saw a LC and she just told me not to offer the breast unless MJ is actively looking for it or just before offering her solids, which I thought I was doing with demand feeding. The only thing i'm getting from "friends & family" is to give her a bottle
I'll be going back up tomorrow to the breast feeding support drop in but really need help now.
Please help me.
