Re: I need encouraging
Have you checked your diet at all for foods that might be irritating your DD? Joey couldn't tolerate much dairy in MY diet while breastfeeding; I have a friend who couldn't have ANY caffeine or her kids would be very uncomfortable. Those are two of the most common triggers I've heard, wheat can be another.
Maybe you could try elminating one of those from your diet (whichever you have the most of) and see if it makes a difference? Give it a few days.
You CAN do this and it WILL get better! The first weeks are the hardest, before you know it she's going to be big and interesting in life beyond the boob...really, it does happen!!
