Re: bfing a squirmy and fussy newborn - HELP!

Give it until 6 weeks old. It's like magic, it really does get easier then. But if you get to 6 weeks and still are unhappy, switch to formula. And don't feel guilty. It's a lot to adjust to, being a new mom!

Also, you should contact a lactation consultant. They can look at your baby eat and help you out. And they can do an intake check (weigh before and after a feeding) so you can see how much your baby is getting at the breast. Best of luck!
