Hi ladies! i hope you are all good tonight.
I must admit im about to pull out my hair. Im having a very hard time staying with the breast feeding. My Son is nealry 2 1/2 months old and has been a big eater since the second he was born. He was born 9ib! and hasnt stopped growing. still is 95% in wight and hight. So there arnt any concerns about him getting enough BUT...
Due to problems with my left side i can only feed on my right ( had same with my daughter, was able to feed her on 1 side for 6 months). I made it threw 3 week and 6 week growth spurts which was so hard. But now he wants to be attached nearly 24/7 for the last 3 days.
Righty is so soar and hurting. Im also mentally exhausted from it. My daughter who is almost 3 is just begging for attention. But my son gets so fussy if i take him off. he just cries and cries. while trying to find the cause i realized he has 2...i repeat 2!! teeth coming in. So i know its due to pain and needing comfort. which explains why his ..bite..has gotten much worse.
I just dont know what to do. im so ready to throwin the towel. But i dont want to. i was so mad i couldn't make it to a year with my daughter so i dont wanna give up. But between my pain, his pain, emotionaly exasted and time i just not sure i can keep going. im also just tired. he sleeps solid 6 hours from 7pm to 1 or 2 am but then he eats every 45 minutes until 6m and then he eats every hour and half.
Iv been thinking of pumping but since he does eat so much im worried i wont pump enough! Please help ladies i feel so drained. Feel free to ask me anything. Sorry i didnt introduce my self i will do that once kids are in bed.
