FTM Please Help !!
I usually don’t post on this app and just lurk but I don’t know what to do at this point 😩.
I’m a first time mom to a beautiful baby girl. She’s 2 months now and EBF since I’m a stay at home mom for the time being. She won’t take naps during the day unless I’m willing to hold her the whole time, which means I can’t get anything done. Can’t use the bathroom, can’t take a quick shower, can’t do anything in the kitchen, can’t clean nada without her crying like crazy. She also cluster feeds pretty much every day but I know my supply is not the issue because I always pump to see if my supply is dropping and I can get 6-8 oz on both sides (also her doctor says she’s doing great at her 2 months appointment this week). She usually falls asleep on the breast but as soon as I try to put her down she’s automatically awake. Then you’d think since she’s up all day that she’d sleep through the night but she wakes up constantly every 1.5 to 3 hours. I’ve tried letting her cry it out to see if she’ll self soothe but she’s persistent and I always feel bad and pick her up anyways. Even sometimes when she’s held she’s still fussy.
What can I do to fix this attachment issue or whatever you want to call it because I’m starting to go crazy at this point 😩😭😩
