Okay, here is the new BF thread. Any questions, concerns, rants, raves, late night commiseration, you name it put it here!
Are they going to make this a sticky? :D
I hope so, but even if they dont and we keep posting in it, it will stay on the first page so we dont have to hunt through all the posts about bfing....I just have such a hard time remembering to take my behind into resources and links...
My daughter has acid reflux and usually for 1-2 evening feedings she'll claw, hit, and arch refusing to latch on. She's almost 3 months old and on acid reducer. If someone has a suggestion I'd love to hear it. I hate seeing her so frustrated.
My son is a champ at brestfeeding except for the fact that I wish He would open his mouth wider to feed. It doesn't hurt while he eats but after it is a little tender.
Oh and he like to watch TV or anything while he was eating which is annoying because he will start laughing or he tries turning his head while he is attatched.
Quoting June's Mommy:
My daughter feeds very well. The only thing now is she is teething. She will bith down like she has a toy or finger in her mouth and pull. It hurts SO bad. Does anyone elses baby do this? If so what do you do about it?
Biting can not be done while eating so a baby typically does it when they are full or about to fall asleep.
As soon as the baby bites, withdraw the breast and say a frim no every time.
Do not smile
You can try also saying "that hurts mommy. We don't hurt other people.
If baby is teething, give him/her a cold wash cloth to bite on for a bit before nursing.
When she does it I tell her "No that hurts mommy". So I bought her a massaging teether for xmas. She loves it.
Quoting my lipgloss b poppin':
