I read an article yesterday about waiting too long to give a baby a bottle resulting in her not wanting any bottle or pacifier ever. I have been battling thrush with my 6 week old for the past four weeks now and can't get rid of it. I also have neat little cuts on both my nipples from the baby using me as her pacifier all the time. I can't seem to get the cuts to go away. I know the baby latches on properly but she doesn't let go!!!
I try to break the seal but goofy girl bites down right as I pull away from her. Also she has developed a NASTY habit of biting down as hard as she can before arching her tiny little back and pulling as hard as she can away from me to the point I'm afraid she may actually succeed at removing the nipple all together. I need help.
Doctors don't seem to have advice to resolve either issue. Perhaps a "seasoned mother" may have the answers for me?
