I'd say Firas is a fussy baby, especially when it comes to nursing. Yep see my EBM stock, people would say...wow bestnyerr dia nih! Nevertheless my breastfeeding journey is wayyy harder than one could ever imagine.
Thank god i found this useful link that has answered all my questions pertaining to fussy babies, distractible babies and what nots. Hopefully i'll persevere on way forward, though at times i do feel like giving up especially when he turned on his speaker...OUT LOUD macam org sakit!
Some excerpt from the link: http://www.kellymom.com/babyconcerns/distractible-baby.html
Latch on, suck a moment, pull off... latch on, suck a moment, pull off. Nurse a minute, pull away to smile at mom. Nurse a minute, pull away to see who just walked in the room. Nurse a minute, pull away to listen to the TV...
But in Firas case, he'll cry his lungs out during the first few minutes before nursing....or even during the nursing...macam la ade org pukul dia :p And these are what i did so far to overcome the problem:
- Nursing in a quiet, darkened, boring room
- Nursing while in motion (walking, hold him and gently bounce, sway back and forth ) - ni mmg mencabar kesabaranku...sakit pinggang nak dodoi2 dia
Moga Allah permudahkan perjalananku ini.....
