Re: Baby refuses to nurse during day
Welcome to the forum!
Are you back at work, and therefore absolutely required to pump, or are you home with your baby? Because here's what I'm thinking- your baby is a great nurser at night. Since she can nurse, and nurse well, when the circumstances are right, it suggests that the daytime breast refusal is more about a preference than about her ability to latch and nurse. So you might be able to break that preference by taking a "nursing vacation", where you get into bed with baby and just focus on nursing, nursing, nursing. Maybe once your baby is in what she thinks of as "the nursing location" instead of "the bottle location", she'll be more willing to nurse. And after a couple of days of increased practice, maybe she'll decide that breast beats bottle no matter where she is.
Do you have a shield? Shields can be useful for reluctant latchers- they have some drawbacks but those are secondary to getting the baby on the breast and off the bottle.
