Hello there. I am a first time mom and my baby boy is 1 week old today. I am desperate to breast feed him, but we are not being very successful. While I was at the hospital the labor and delivery nurse was very insistent that I use a nipple shield. I knew in my gut that I should not, but I trusted her more than myself as far as knowing what is best. Now baby will not, and I mean will not latch without a shield, and to top it all off now my milk supply is decreasing. While I was at the hospital I could pump anywhere from an ounce to 3 ounces After each feeding. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I feel like he is starving. I do not want to cave and go the formula route. PLEASE HELP!
