LO is 6 months this week. I'm getting so frustrated with BFing being easy as pie one week, then hard as all get out the next.
I had an internal blood blister that popped while nursing 2 weeks ago, then last week nursing was ok for the most part. This week, that side is cracked and constantly bleeding. I am tired of DS looking like a vampire everytime he nurses and having black poop.
When does it get to the point where LO can latch themselves 100% of the time and not cause pain? I feel like anytime I allow DS to latch on his own consistently, even if it doesn't hurt, I end up with issues. I am fed up with nipples that ache all the time, lanolin stains and having to grit my teeth for initial latch. I feel like I have a newborn again!
