This kid is stubborn. With a capital S. At 6 days old. I've spent about 15 minutes at each of the last two feedings, trying to convince Ethan that my left breast is in fact not bad and evil and that he does in fact need to eat from it. He just clamps his little jaw shut and will not be moved. He doesn't even yawn or make his rooting faces when I'm trying to get him to eat from that side. Just in case I try to slip something in his open mouth. If I offer the other side, all is well, and the mouth opens. But the left side...whoo boy.
Another feeding in 13 minutes. Then back to sleep for a little while longer for all of us. Hurray! Sleep!
