I am having some majour problems breastfeeding my youngest

hi jackie,
my name is bonnie and i am a mother of two. i am having some majour problems breastfeeding my youngest. jordan is 3 1/2 months old. every time i go to feed him from the right side he arches his back, gets really stiff and cries, but has a few sucks and then goes back to what i described before. it is a little easier to feed him from the left side but i still get the same response. i end up giving him a bottle because it is so frustrating for us both. i always try to breastfeed first before i give him the bottle. i dont want to bottle feed, i want to breast feed.
i have asked the breast feeding ass, ngala, a lactation consultant and even taken him to a chiropractor. and there is still no difference. please help me!!! what is he trying to tell me?

Jacki...
Answer: Hi Bonnie, This really isn`t my area of expertise. It`s best to direct your feeding questions to Leanne, or see your Early Childhood Health Centre for advice. Best of luck, Jackie
