When I was in the hospital I attempted to breast feed. Nurses helped me but I did not see a lactation consultant. I tried for 24 hours but then the nurses recommended I feed her. So, I gave her formula.
Now, most feelings I try the nipple first. If she doesn't get it, which she hasn't fully got it down packed I give her a bottle of breast milk or formula. She has had moments when she latched on a sucked, but only for a few seconds. I feel like she may be confused with the nipples. I'm not sure how to be successful anymore and am beginning to feel like exclusively pumping is my route. I have a support system including baby's dad, mom and other family members.
Please help. I need some tips. Thanks!
