I had my baby girl on Tuesday. Breast feeding has gone well. She latched in within minutes of being born. She's been going through hours where she just roots around. I'll feed her, make sure she's had plenty and she'll fall asleep at my breast. Then when I go to pull her away or lay her down she will wake up within 10 min and root around again. Is this normal? Is she using my breast as a pacifier? I wouldn't mind it so much except I have a toddler and a house and a hubby to take care of. Plus my nipples are getting raw even with creme. Would it interfere if I introduced a paci? I'm new at breast feeding completely and don't want to ruin what we have.
