I feel like it just keeps getting harder instead of easier. I'm guessing some things are typical for her age but they are making me frustrated and feeling stressed. Breastfeeding is no fun at the moment. It was never this painful in the beginning.
She only falls asleep at the boob. She like the stay latched on for long periods of time (sometimes the whole nap). Occasionally she tights her teeth around my nipple and just want to hold her jaw clinched like this the whole time she sleeps. When I take her off she immediatly wakes up and is upset and refuses to settle down until she is latched on again and it will often just repeat.
She has four upper teeth and often latches on with a CHOMP. Particularly when upset.
She will rip off suddenly, dragging all those teeth across my nipple.
But by far the most common is the nursing acrobatics. I know for most people watching it is cute and something to laugh at. Coupled with the hand under the shirt pinching and scratching at my breast this causes me a lot of stress. Sometimes to much touch can become painful for me. Is it too early or cruel if I try to modify this behaviour by putting her on the floor when she does it? Am I extreme if I don't want to tolerate my daughter nursing while trying to stand on my lap?
