First off, thank you for taking the time to read this and if you are able to offer any advice, I'd really appreciate it!
My baby is now 2 weeks old and was originally a really good latcher. So good in fact that my nipples were bleeding heavily by day 3. I still attempted to breast feed her, but had to stop once I saw how much blood was coming out! So, I decieded to just pump and finger/tube feed her until my nipples could heal. After about a week of this, my husband decided to test a bottle to see if baby would take it. I've continued to pump and bottle feed her until now. Occasionally, I've tried to breast feed her, but she doesn't want it. However, I really really miss (and am scared that I've missed the opportunity) the bonding while breast feeding and was wondering if there's any tips out there that can help me put baby back on the breast? Thank you!!!
