Okay, her'es the deal: something's rotten in the state of breastfeeding. It's 11:49 am, and I have Cooper strapped to me in the Ergo FINALLY asleep. I am dreading 1 hour and 11 minutes from now when he'll need to eat again because that is when the screaming will start.
My milk is not letting down. At all. Okay, a little bit, but only after about 10 minutes of sucking. Understandably, Cooper does not have the patience to suck this long without freaking out. Once it lets down, he only eats for 3 or 4 minutes and when we try the other side, the screaming begins again.
The only totally easy feedings we have are the one in the middle of the night and the first one of the morning (although he screamed through that one this morning, now that I think about it. Hmm, maybe we only have 1 easy feeding).
I have been googling organic formula in BPA-free cans all morning.
Mid-hunt for the nonexistent let down, I have been trying to feed him pumped milk to take the edge off, but he won't freaking eat anything out of a freaking bottle no matter what temperature it is.
He is peeing and pooping like normal and still sleeping 8 hours at night. WTF is going on, and WTF can I do about it? I have googled slow let down and am trying to implement some suggestions from kelly mom, but THIS SUCKS. Advice?
