My DD#2 was born on the 14th. I was having issues breastfeeding yesterday because I was too sore. I ended up supplementing a total of 4 oz total yesterday. I know I shouldn't have and I did get upset at myself, but I think it actually helped me because it seems my milk supply is now starting to come in and she's feeding better. Is it normal to feel tired yourself while breastfeeding? I literally doze off sometimes and am very tired its hard to stay awake sometimes.
Also, I try to lay DD#2 down after feeding but she seems to wake up and get very upset. I don't want her relying on sleeping on me ( after I feed her I try to burp her and she falls asleep more on my chest) but I'm not sure what to do because she won't stay asleep if I lay her down elsewhere.
