Twitching and turning

I almost forgot what it was like to nurse a growing baby. In my mind, I always envisioned cute baby and contented mummy.

But then, when the baby starts to be more aware of her surroundings, it can be quite a difficult task to nurse her.

I am now this way with Megan. She is now much more interested and aware of her surroundings. And so, each time I try to feed her, she will nurse until some sound, noise or voice catches her attention and she will turn to that direction. It is not so bad except that she will sometimes do this with her mouth full and it will cause me great agony.

Arghh!!! I need to get my nipple cream by the buckets now. Sob, sob.
