Ahhh ignore those first few responses!!! Obviously these ladies are not breastfeeders and part of the problem in the failure rate of breastfeeding.
Just because she is refusing the breast part of the time does not mean you should give up breastfeeding. As a PP asked when does she normally have this difficulty or when is she more apt to breastfeed without a problem? Usually when getting a baby back to the breast it is best to breastfeed before the child is in the pangs of hunger, while their sleepy or in the bathtub. She sounds like she is doing great!! You both will overcome this hurdle and have a wonderful breastfeeding relationship! Congrats on your little one and your valiant efforts with breastfeeding BTW!!
