We are on day four of cluster feeding. The first day she went for 8 hours nursing and then slept for six. Ever since then she is nursing for about an hour and then she will sleep for an hour and then nurse for an hour, etc. Except she has one or two spells a day that last from anywhere from 5-8 hours. She will nurse for about 30 minutes, take a 5 minute break, nurse for another 30 minutes, etc. It is those long spells that are killing me.
She is making 6-7 diapers a day.
How long will this last? What do I do? My boobs feel empty and sore. They aren't cracking and the latch is fine.
I am not ready to give up but I find myself getting to that point.
I go to see an lc on Tuesday but I am to the point that I am dreading doing all this tomorrow. I love nursing her but keep feeling like something is wrong.
