I have a 9 day old daughter and my oh my has it been a bumpy road in the breastfeeding department. I have seen lactation specialists twice and why does it seem so great while i am there in front of them but then totally diff. @ home???!!! Anyways, we have been having latching issues, and it seems like it is getting a little better, but today she has been one hungry little thing and my nipples have had ENOUGH. She fed for over an hour and still seemed like she wanted more. MY breasts seriously felt empty, and i have not had any supply issues. What do i do in this case? I just bought a pump but have not used it, and lactations said no bottles or pacifers for the first 6 WEEKS! i don't know how i am going to make it that long if this keeps going on. We both get so frustrated and it's just pure craziness. Any advice?? Also, another question, my b/f and i are wondering if it is worth purchasing a swing. She hasn't been too bad with crying/or sleeping if she eats enough, but we know more crying is very soon down the road. Is it worth the money?? Thanks gals!
