Hi all, I am in quite a dilemma here. 4 months ago i had my baby and knew next to nothing about bfing. There was no one to ask about it, i battled for a week trying to get my dd to latch and drink we gave in a few times and bottle fed formula with tommy tippee closer to nature bottles as i did not want her to develop a prefrence but dd was bfing 3 - 5 times a day and so it was all good then about a week ago she went through a real fussy stage. I thought teething maybe so i just gave her what she wanted(the bottle) but now she is refusing to bf and pulls away from me. I know i can relatch her but the minute i even place her in bf position she starts squrming and arching away from me. If i persist she starts crying. I feel so rejected and helpless. We dont have a hosp to rent a pump and to buy one we would have to go to the next country. I live in zimbabwe and there is no bfing consultant here.
I am thinking about just giving up trying but thought id give it one more shot. What do i do to increase milk suppy and how to get her to relatch with no stress i am a sahm. Please help.
