Nursing was such a wonderful thing for my ds and me... and well lately it has been so frustrating.
My letdown seems to take FOREVER now--maybe my nipples have grown just way too numb to any sensations. DS just gets mad ---and sucks... crys.. sucks...crys... etc...I just keep gettting more and more frustrated all along--which I know doesn't help matters, but its hard. Especially at night...I know that most of you co-sleep...we tried and it's just not working. DS is very mobile and just keeps trying to crawl out of bed. So, he still gets up every four hours at night which is hard enough--but then I have to get out of bed and try to nurse him with a much delayed letdown and frustrated sleepy DS.
You know I just hate feeling this way about nursing. I used to have SO much milk and it was just easier. Now it seems I'm always on the verge of not having enough and it takes forever to come out. I've been trying fenugreek for the supply issues mostly around AF. What's going on?
I don't know if there's advice for this--or just deal with it. I don't want to be a baby. Thank goodness to be able to be giving DS breastmilk..I guess some people just can't.
