I am in tears as I am writing this, my 8 week old baby has been fussing on my breast for the last week, she had a thrush, but that is gone and she is struggleing a bit with reflux. When she had a good feeding with little fussing or gagging etc. she will take the next feeding OK, but she only wants to feed every 3-4 hours at the most and even then sometimes only one side :((
I had it a couple times where she would not want the breast at all and she would rather starve herself, despite being hungry and yes she is hungry she would rather not drink, I noticed my milk supply decreased a lot and I pumped and gave it to her with the bottle since she has refused to eat for too long and cried being very hungry...she took the bottle and wanted more I offered her the breast and she did not want it again. Last time I tried this she at least took the breast after the small amount in the bottle was finished....I do not know what to do, she gets so upset when she has the reflux and when my milk comes in too fast as it always does she can not always keeep up with it and lets go and never wants back on again :(( If I let her off till the let down goes away, she would not latch back on!
I just do not know what to do anymore this is my third child and I never had this problem ever I do not want to give up but It is so painfull to not working out :((
Any help or Ideas are appreciated!!
