Breastfeeding after childbirth is not an easy thing. I need a nipple shield because my breasts hurt. I have nipple cracking and blood. And my baby’s short tongue frenulum means she can’t latch properly. I hope the nipple shield won’t harm her growth, because even if we give her additional milk sometimes, she doesn’t want to use it. She’s so tired. She only sleeps for an hour between feedings. I wake her up every three hours, but because she takes so much time to feed, she has little time to rest. Is this why we have so much difficulty waking her up?
