I have been breastfeeding two months now and everything is just going wrong all of the sudden! Normally when he first started he would feed for 15 minutes and thats it. Then sometimes maybe more when he would cluster feed. Now he will sit on one breast for 30 minutes and still want the other breast for another 30 and then he is still not satified and so cranky! I dont know what to do I find myself feeding all day long to a fussy cranky baby. He will latch and unlatch over and over. And I hate to do it but I've had to give him bottles because thats the only way he gets satisfied with his hunger. And hes very happy after a bottle. I dont know what to do I want to be able to provide for him but he just doesnt seem interested and it really sucks because I want that closeness with him not to mention the benefits of breast milk. I just dont know what else it could be. I do co-sleep with him and now at night he does eat off my breast but instead of being up every 4 hours to eat hes up every hour or sooner and just isnt sleeping well and neither am i. Im at my wits end. anyone else go through this? Any ideas?
