So my daughter is 1 week and 5 days old.
In the hospital she didnt want to feed for about 10 hours.
We had trouble with the latch in the hospital so they gave me a sheild to help...
she seemed to do okay but it was pretty painful at times. When we got her home it
just got worse. She gets so fussy and upset at having to work for her food.
She cried and cant seem to latch on well. Without the sheild, a latch has been impossible.
With the sheild, she will latch but it is extremely painful.
In the first days of my milk coming in I was so engored i was told to pump..
I could get up to 4 oz combined at most, usually just 2 though.
Now, within the last few days my breasts dont seem to be getting full.
Can i simply not be producing enough? We have been suplimenting to make sure she is
getting enough calories, but I am getting really discouraged. Any advice on effective
latching, or what could be wrong would be most appreciated.
