Hello Everyone, My name is Lisa. I had my daughter alittle over two weeks ago. And since the day of her birth, she has been cluster feeding. I feel like not one minute goes by and she is on the breast. I want to pump to start a supply for when I go back to work. But, when I do pump I am getting maybe 1 ounce. She is my second child. I also breastfed my first daughter. These are two different babies. My first I did not have a problem with. I am starting to get some pain in my right breast. I never had that before. I have nipple pain when I pump and then it hurts to nurse her after that. I am afraid she is not getting enough. I am starting to get flustered because lack of sleep. She doesnt sleep that well. I feel like giving up but i dont want to. i am trying to break her habit of sleeping in my arms and on my chest. When I lay her down she wakes and thinks she has to eat. Any suggestions or advice is welcome. ThanksView Thread
