Re: hungry baby refusing the breast
Welcome to the forum! It sounds like you have a pretty good system going- offer the baby a bit of milk in a bottle, and then latch her onto the breast. What would happen if you gradually tapered down the amount of milk in the bottles?
An instant reward technique that might work for you would be to express some milk onto the surface of the nipple before latching baby on. Baby might be more prone to nurse if she gets the taste of milk in her mouth- provided she will latch on, that is. Will she?
