I have a six am old baby who was born via c-section after 25 hours of labor with no progress. I had planned to bf my whole pregnancy. I took classes and did research so I knew this was not going to be easy. Unfortunatly due to extremely bad anemia I had to have a blood transfusion and spent the fist few days in the hospital weak and extremely tired. I worked with a lactation consultant in the hospital and my baby latched a few times well. Unfortunatly due to my current physical condition I did try as hard as I should. I have pumped so I still have milk. When I hold my baby in my chest he roots toward my breast even though he has not been bf other than in hospital. I have tried to get him to latch but my nipples are not long like a bottle. He will put my nipple in his mouth but will not suck since he is use to having a mouth full if bottle nipple. What are my chances of nursing using a nipple shield since he is already 6 wks?
