I am a new mommy, age 20 and I am still trying to get the hang of this whole breastfeeding thing.. My daughter was born on September 27th and I have been breasfeeding/pumping and bottle feeding her since day 1. I'm having a problem with keeping her awake when she is latching, and as soon as I pull her off she'll start screaming. So again, I'll put her back on and again, she'll fall asleep. When I bottle feed her she stays awake and eats just fine. However, I feel like any time she eats anymore she's hungry again 10 minutes later and I feel like I just can't keep up with her. My nipples are also very tender still is there anything other than Lansinoh cream I can use to help ease the pain?
