ok...I thoughtmy LO was just being lazy but it seems like he just doesn't want to nurse from my breast anymore. He will be 5 weeks old on wed. I had two 45 minute sessions last night trying to feed him. I undressed him,. changed his diaper, had low lights in the room but he He either pulls away from my breast or falls asleep. This morning I finally gave up and gave him a bottle because he has not pooped in two days and I need to know he is getting something to eat. He ate 2 ounce from the bottle which makes me feel good but I had to fight him to eat the enitre thing. This has been going on for several days now and i dont know what to do. His first bottle was last night so it's not like he is just wanting the bottle because it is easier.
I am going to call the lactation consultant on Monday and make an appointment but any advice would be great.
If I supplement with formula do you have any recommendations on what to use? I just want to make sure he is getting enough to eat.
