I have been bf dd since birth with no problems at all in fact it couldnt have gone better but since she got her 3rd set of jabs a few weeks ago she went from sleeping through the night to up every 40 mins to 1hr between 7pm and 6am during the day she feeds every hour but will only have maybe 2x 20 min naps during the day. she just never sleeps and im feeling really low with it all.

And now to top it off the last couple of days she has started "biting" my nipple and sucking hard or wrong she also kind of shakes her head back and forth with her mouth open like she is ravenous or she is tring to bite me i dont know which but my nipples are in tatters and have little blood bilsters over them i am in agony, is it time to crack open the bottles?

You poor thing Late growth spurt? Teething? Not got a lot of advice but bumping in the hope someone else will have.

thanks dita i think i have at least figured out one problem tonight i have just noticed that baby has white bits on her inside cheeks so i think its thrush that is causing some of the problems im just going to look up some advice on it thanks. x
