ok, I need your help. This is my 5th baby, and I have nursed all of them a min. of 18 months. BUT this little one is so different! She was a great nurser from the moment of birth. However, last week she got sick. She was in the hospital with RSV and had to be on oxygen for 5 days. Well, on day 2 they did let me start nursing again. (On day 1 they provided a pump and fed her with a syringe. Her breathing was too fast to nurse) Anyway ever since when she has been nursing , every time I have a let down she pulls off. I keep a cloth diaper there to catch the flow, but it is getting messy and I can not get anything done now, cause she is eating almost constant. She isn't getting full, and just wants to suck but it just seems like she doesn't want the fast flow. She had a follow up at the DR today, and I asked her, but she wasn't too concerned. Are there any tricks to help with this?
