If I'm in any position other than sitting up?? I've tried laying on my side..reclining with her on top of me, and the football hold! She will have no part of it, unless I'm sitting up with her in the cradle hold she acts like she dont know what to do with the boob. She'll latch on but then she gets off and cries and fusses while she looks around. Any ideas what's going on and how to help her adjust??.....

All you can do is keep trying. Right now she knows what she likes... continue to try and one day she'll surprise you.

Some babies are really particular and will only nurse in certain positions. It is a personality thing. Sometimes you can get baby nursing and then change positions. Baby may be more willing to accept a different position if she's not too hungry.
