Ok so anyone else have a baby who gets milk streaming out of his nose when breastfeeding? Yes, streaming. Like it’s going in his mouth and then straight out his nose. And no, he’s not laughing. I do have a tendancy to have things come out of my nose. Especially when I’m with Courtenay. She’s made many things go up my nose including carrot. I hope there’s not something wrong with Isaac’s whole system there that’s making this happen.
Breastfeeding is getting annoying. Ike is having a pretty hard time during the day. I think I might go see a lactation consultant to see if there’s any tricks out there. I know Silas pulled his head back and screamed bloody murder when I was nursing him too. So frusterating! Ike doesn’t scream bloody murder but he still cries and cries. Sometimes he cries when I just offer him my breast, like he’s not looking forward to this next feeding. He seems to get a gap somewhere so he sucks in some air causing him to cough and swallow air and then he’s pissed because he has a burp in there which takes forever to get out of him. His latch is best at night time. It’s perfect then and he likes to keep it latched for two hours sometimes. I dunno, I guess I’m getting used to that part.
I’m glad I’m a person who formula is just not an option. I like all natural things. It’s how I eat and live so my mind is just very made up about that. The only cleaning things in my house that aren’t all natural is my shampoo, but I’m a hairdresser so I’m picky. I’ve been through a troubling nursing time before so I know I can get through it again. I’m just frustrated. Another thing I’m frustrated with is my sweet little Silas only sleeping an hour and a bit and is now screaming in his bed room. I guess it’s now time for me to go. Will the teething ever end?
