I desperately want to continue breastfeeding my baby - if anyone can share similar experiences then that would be fantastic. Rosie Mae is now 6 weeks old. Born weighing 6lb 9oz. I have been bf her exclusively. Everything was going fine and at 4 weeks she weighed 7lb 9oz. Over the weekend I noticed a milk blister on my right nipple and it started to get more painful. I called my HV who visited yesterday. She weighed Rosie and in two weeks she had only put on 2oz so at 6 weeks she only weighs 7lb 11oz. The HV watched me feeding Rosie and said that the blister has been caused as her latch is not sufficient. Rosie is very little and my breasts are big so she tends to only take the nipple and small amount of areaola. I was previously led to believe that if I wasn't in pain and baby had wet and dirty nappies then I didn't need to worry I have done nothing but cry since she was weighed yesterday. I have been trying so hard to get her to take a bigger mouthful but she just pulls back after going on. She thrashes about so much when I try to wait for that gaping mouth - I get so frustrated and then it takes ages for my milk to let down. There is no way I can express for her - I need both my hands whilst feeding her (as breasts are so big I have to support the breast) Also she is quite clingy and there wouldn't be enough time to express when she's asleep as she likes to be rocked/cuddled etc. Someone please please help me. I feel like I'm failing her.
