I'm starting to have some trouble feeding my 2 month old daughter. My lactation specialist is unsure of how to handle the situation. A few weeks ago my daughter developed a bad case of thrush. After several days and a couple of trips to emerg we got some treatment for her. But she developed a bad eating habit. She's latching on and coming off all throughout the feeding. Towards the end she makes rooting behaviour but when given the breast becomes angry and wants only her soother. Two days ago i took her soother away completly. She than started feeding almost every 1 or so, all day and all night long (not large feeds almost like she's snacking at some of them). But when she did eat she would stay latched the entire time. I couldn't keep feeding her this often so we attempted to give her back her soother. She has returned back to the latch release behaviour. Then towards the end of the feeding becoming angry at the breast, and still making rooting behaviour. any suggestions on what to do?
