Hello everyone, I'm writing this in secret because my wife isn't the best at asking for advice.
She gave birth 3 weeks ago to a beautiful baby girl but this past week breastfeeding has been an absolute nightmare for her with the baby refusing to settle at night and frustrating multiple attempts to breastfed with a session on each breast lasting only 5 minutes.
Now I know newborns can be erratic with tjeir feeding and sleeping times but my wife is the kind of person who breaks down crying when our Bichon dog barks for more than a minute so as you can imagine the stress is eating at her and that's not including the lack of sleep.
I've been looking at various books on breastfeeding in a hope to try and get some routine established. I am looking at Contented Little Baby Book by Gina Ford is it any good?
Apologies if my question is rather scatter brained but sleep deprivation is getting to me too. Is it true that it is better to empty a breast first before moving to the next?
