I'm having terrible difficulties with breastfeeding. I tried going to a LLLC meeting but didn't make it. The hour and a half drive took 3 hrs to get there and I showed up late (she decided she didn't want to be in a car seat). So I'm looking for any suggestions. I finally figured out why my little girl wouldn't latch on the right to work for her milk. She has thrush again. We are in the process of trying to get her better (4 days into treatment). However in the time it took me to discover this i have greatly lost my milk supply on the right. The left is all she will feed off of because that's the side with the heaviest let down. I've tried all the things listed on kelly mom for encouraging her to the right to build up the milk supply on the right and cause a better letdown. There is one thing that I can't find the answer to. My dd is 3 months old and is very stubborn when she wants to be. when i try to latch her hourly (because I can't get any milk to come out of me with a pump, even in the tub) she becomes very anrgy with me and starts to cry. If i insert my nipple into her mouth she mearly bites down with all her mite and tries to pull it away from my breast What do I do? She won't feed off the right until I build my supply but if i attempt to latch her she bites. The pump won't get any milk out. Any suggestions on how i can discourage her from biting?? and increase my milk on that side??? Thank you for any suggestions you can thing of.
