When your baby starts pinching or biting while nursing, it can make breastfeeding very frustrating. You may find yourself dreading nursing sessions instead of enjoying that peaceful, bonding moment that it once was. I’m currently facing this issue with Littlest, so I’d like to share with you 5 tips that I use daily to prevent my baby from biting and pinching while breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding Littlest has been a new frontier for me. This is my third baby, and the only one that I’ve had an over-supply of milk with. This has given me peace of mind that I didn’t have with the other two, as Big and Little both had me taking medication to increase milk production. But it comes with its own set of quirks and struggles.
Nursing a newborn is both beautiful and exhausting. This is the third child that I have breastfed and nursing still finds ways to surprise me. “Littlest” is now into his second week of life, and while I do seem to have a bountiful and well established milk supply (it came in much faster with this baby than with my previous two births), we are having latch issues that have caused pain and bleeding.
