My baby girl is now 6 months old. She was doing fine with breastfeeding till she was 5 weeks old.
Unfortunately she wasn't able to latch on my right breast during the
hospital. So I was supposed to pump the right and nurse on the left.
Things were fine till we started giving her bottles when in public.
Also the 2 weeks befre she started fussing at the breast I started
pumping my right side more frequently because I was afraid I was
losing the supply on it. I hadn't really stuck till the pump every 3
hours schedule for my right side till then.
But at first she refused to nurse only during days then at nights and since Jan she never nurses! I've been trying everything. I should have seen a lactation consultant earlier but I kept thinking she was going to nurse eventually.
But finally when I went to the lactation consultant she gave me a nipple shield which my baby girl just chews up. She seems to have forgotten how to even suck cause if I by chance get my nipple in her mouth she gags and she gags on my finger when I put it in her mouth too. She used to suck when I put my finger in her mouth a few months ago. Things looked hopeful a few months ago but I lost hope this month.
Could you please please help me get her back to the breast??? and start nursing like before??? I was using medela bottles
