Re: is it even possible?
yes Momma It is possible to breastfeed this LO. you are more than half way there b/c you have an ample milk supply b/c you pumped. Hurray!
Some mothers have success when they bottle feed first and then once the baby is not distracted by hunger, lie skin to skin w/ baby and gently guide baby to breast.
Do this for every feeding, if the baby latches on keep her on b/c your breasts will transfer milk.
If the baby gets distracted/confused/ frustrated b/c she's hungry and she hasn't latched then do not let her get inconsolable.
By all means bottle feed her and then offer the breast for relaxation or to top off the feeding.
