My daughter is 19mnths. I don't mind breastfeeding her on demand (I am a SHM) but I am not sure if she is getting any milk after a few minutes. It seems to me that after a while, I don't feel that feeding sensation and she is just sucking away, playing with her hair etc. To be honest, I don't want to continue if I am just a pacifier because it hurts my nipples and I can't seem to get a good night's rest because of the awkward boob-in-mouth poisition I have to sleep in.
Anyone knows the difference between true breastfeeding and just pacifiying? Has anyone rectified this 'problem' of just being a pacifier?
