My baby is starting to refuse breast feeding on day 3!!! Help me please!
3 days ago I gave birth (vaginally) to a 10lb 11.2oz baby boy. I suffered a 2nd degree tear and require percocet to manage the pain so I'm knocked out every four hours and have a difficult time sitting therefore my bf holds forms are suffering. Side lying just puts him to sleep and is hard to maintain proper form since he is still flailing around. The lactation specialist came and saw me twice. My son latches well and stays awake but he lost 11% of his body weight so I have to supplement until my milk comes in. I tried to pump (madela hospital grade pump) today for 20 minutes and NOTHING CAME OUT...NOTHING. Now I see why he is losing weight. To make matters worse he is starting to refuse my breast and preferring the tommee tippee top bottle (slow flow nipple) with formula. I attempt to bf every 2 hours and top him off with 2oz of formula only when he is still screaming after 20 minutes on each breast.
I really want to breastfeed but I am feeling hopeless since he is turning the breast down.
What can I do to save this situation?
