My 4 month old has been having issues dealing with a delayed letdown, and now he has a cold as well. But he is striking completely now. I can not get him to even take my nipple into his mouth when he is awake. I was able to feed him while sleeping at 945 am and at 2 pm, but it was not easy. It's now 530 pm and that is all he has eaten today.
And he's not doing a lot of sleep because he is so hungry, so less chances to feed him. I've tried skin to skin, I can't get anything when I pump, and he does not take a bottle, so I am terrified of pumping, and the milk going to waste.
I'm sorry for rambling but I really don't know what to do. How do I get back to nursing? I didn't really even want to nurse in the first place, but now I don't want to stop.
