I can not get this child to nurse during the day! She nurses at night almost no problem so I latch her every few hours and she nurses. I nurse her to put her to sleep ten randomly through the night even though she doesn't wake up to stimulate my milk more. But during the day we fight the whole ten allowed minutes then she ends up getting what I could pump then formula the res of the way with me trying to latch her after every oz on the bottle. I'll get a few min of latch then she gets angry. Why isn't she latching during the day?
Also I was told not to lose anymore weight. I'm 5'5 and 138 (20 lbs more then what I normally weigh) because my body needs the extra weight. Is this true? If so bf sucks if I have to stay chubby! I have never been so big in my life not pregnant an it's killing my joints!
Do I really need to keep this weight on? Also I was told to eatatleast 2000 calories a day! Why so many when te normal non breastfeeding amount would be around 1200 for my height/age
