Oh I was doing so well - yesterday and today have been tough. DS2 seems to be great during the day but night time is a struggle
My nipples are tender and sore - latch is ok I think, its just sore for the first few sucks and then settles. DS2 has some problems though and I dont know what, when feeding he is squirming around and pulling down my nipple which means I am re-latching him loads during a feed and he is getting frustrated. He is tensing up and pulling him knees up - all of which arent helping the feeding situation but I know this is a wind problem, I just dont know whats wrong or how to fix it, I have posted on the colic, reflux board though.
Shivi, I havent used the compresses in a while - I have got them out and Im going to use them next feed. I am also going to take some neurofen (i havent needed any painkillers for a week now) because I know they will help .
I dont have any redness and my breasts are quite hot to touch but Im not sure if thats relevant??
Right breast today doesnt feel fuller like it did yesterday, both seem quite empty to be honest
what if there isnt enough milk?
I also wanted to ask, how long should you feed on one side before moving to the next? Sometimes DS2 will feed from one and then fall asleep but he will wake when I move him and want more, should I continue on the same side or move to the other? Usually he has fed quite a lot from the first (but I hand expressed and there was still milk coming out).
I feel clueless today
