    Here is a great link

    In general baby likes a bottle because its easier, you can hand express or pump just to get the milk flowing and keep trying to latch her on. This weekend you can also try a nursing vacation. Take baby to bed with you and do skin to skin all weekend and keep at it.

    it can be hard to get her back to the breast, but it is WORTH it in the long run, so give it your all right now. good luck!

    Definitely agree it is worth it. Do the bath thing, that worked amazingly! It's like the warm water triggers the baby's instincts or something. It is a struggle, they love convenience just like us adults.... Patience, and time! Highly recommend trying a sns, supplemental nurser, the straw thingy with expressed milk, to satisfy baby but keep him suckling.
