Thread: EP back to BF?

  1. #1

    Default EP back to BF?

    My DD is going to be 6 months old in a few weeks....and I am so tired of the pump. Is there any way to get DD to go to BF again? I BF for the first couple of days but then she just stopped wanting to take the breast. I don't know exactly what the problem was, but she would just suck for few seconds and scream. So in the hospital I pumped some and fed it to her....every time after that she wouldn't take the breast so I just stuck to pumping. Well, I'm tired of it but I still want to give her BM. Anyone had any success?
    Any tips or tricks?
    I thought about getting this bottle to help her "re-learn" how to get milk from the breast, but I also have a breastflow bottle I could use too...but that made her really gassy.

    I also deal with the problem of flat nipples, so I will have to use a nipple shield.

    6 months of EP- I bet you're tired of the pump! . This link covers getting a baby back to the breast: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...to-breast.html. At six months, your chances of success... Well, honestly they probably aren't huge. But they aren't nothing, either!
