Comfort nursing frustration Commander Shepard 18 kids; Jacksonville, Florida 6447 posts

DS is two weeks old and he loves to comfort nurse. Normally, I don't have an issue with this but tonight I want to rip my b**bs off. He fights to latch and the pulls off two minutes after he latches. Then he wants to relatch and repeat. I've tried both b**bs and he keeps doing this in addition to pulling back and stretching out my nipples. What the hell can I do? We've been doing this for an hour and he's still up.

My son used to do that when he had a gas bubble. A warm bath and a belly rub might help.

I'm seriously way too chicken to cosleep. I did it with DD because it was just us two. Im scared to try it with DH in bed too.

We've coslept w/ both our kiddos with both of us in our bed. Its not as hard or as dangerous as it sounds. Altho, I may depend on how big DH is and what size your bed is.



My hubs doesn't toss and turn much and we have a king sized bed, so it may be easier for me than for you.

We're a couple of fatties in a queen. Lol. And DH is all over the place in his sleep.

LMAO Ok, then i can see where you'd be a little scared. We're two fatties, but I've co-slept for so long, and I'm such a light sleeper, it's not a problem.

My LO does that when she is gassy. She is the fussiest eater when she has gas... sometimes I just have to hand her over to SO and take a 10 minute break. Pacifier? Other than that... I'm not sure.. I always just deal :?
