    Poor you, that's very frustrating. I would say that there seems to be alot of faffing about and short feeds with breastfeeding while bottles they just get on and feed. Agnes was tube fed initially and I found it helpful to:

    - give 20ml from a bottle first THEN breastfeed, this seems to stop the 'so hungry I don't know what I'm doing'.

    -between feeds offer the breast where you might otherwise offer a dummy so she makes some comfort associations (if possible drop all pacifier use).

    - swaddle or firmly cuddle her arms while feeding. Felicity is a thrasher who keeps 'loosing' the nipple left to her own devices.

    Good luck and hope this helps.

    If we'd had boys the list was: Godfrey, Seamus, Alexander, Michael, Felix, Peter, Ignatius & Sebastian.
