So after 12 weeks of breastfeeding, I've been rejected. In the beginning we had to give the LO bottles alternating with breastfeeding because she was jaundiced. But pretty much from 4 weeks on she was exclusively breastfed up until last week when we did trial runs with my mom giving her bottles since I would be returning to work next week. but it was only a few a day and she still took the breast ok and all weekend and yesterday was just breastfeeding. Then last night for her 7pm feed she rejected the breast. I tried for another 2 hours before finally giving her a bottle which she took 3 oz. I let her sleep and woke her up around 3am to try to eat. She took the breast for 2 min and then we struggled for another 30 min when I finally gave up and gave her another bottle.
Isn't it too late for nipple confusion? Did she just decide she likes the bottle better? Has this happened to anyone else? How can I get her to take the breast again?
I'm so sad she won't take the breast
