Im so close to giving up.
S has been so good at feeding so far. My nipples have been sore but I have had the latch checked by the midwives who assured me its correct. She wants to feed constantly in the evenings and usually settles around 3am. Yesterday she had a really long feed from 4.30-5.20. Come 7.30 she was frantic for feeding again. It felt that this feed lasted all night up until 4.30am. She didn't go longer than 30 mins without being at the breast and this was because I needed a break, not because she didn't want it.
She is usually good whilst on but last night was moving around while latched on causing for more sore nipples! I felt like she was either in pain with wind/ constipation or getting frustrated that she wasn't feeding quickly enough.
I was so close to sending h out for formula last night but I don't know if this would rectify anything because I think part of it is that she just wants to be close.
Idon't really know what advice im asking for but I just needed to vent. S is now fast asleep on my chest after another feed snd even though I'm exhausted I'm terrified of trying to out her in her crib in case she wakes up screaming again and wants another feed.
