My LO is 7 weeks tomorrow. We have had some struggles with BF from the beginning, both with her latch and later, as I would realize, my supply. The supply issue is as "fixed" as it can be - I am pumping and nursing in order to supplement her formula/bottle feedings, so she can at least get some breast every day.
And for a day or two at a time, things go well; she latches great, we have nice solid nursing sessions 4 or 5 times a day. And then other times, we struggle a lot to get a good latch and lately she does this thing where after 5 or 10 minutes of nursing she starts to wriggle and stretch and move her head around, pulling my nipple in 100 different directions! Not only does this hurt, she pulls her mouth back to a very shallow latch, and I have to try to re-latch her. This is frustrating for me and ends up being frustrating for her.
When I squeeze my nips, there is still milk coming out so I don't think it's because the boob is empty. If I pull her away from the breast, she fusses and roots like she wants back there immediately, but then doesn't do a good job when I put her back.
A good nursing session is blissful for both of us but we can't seem to get there consistently each time. Anyone else have this issue? Thoughts or suggestions? We've seen three different LCs for the various issues and i feel like maybe we've exhausted that resource, but also, whenever we are in a consultation she does awesome and I can't really show the LC what the problems are, just explain them verbally.
