My son is almost 5 weeks old and we have had an ugly beginning to breastfeeding. He has a shallow latch and I struggled to get him to open his mouth wide so I could properly latch him. This led to cracked and bleeding nipples. Not just a little blood either.
After all the struggle I decided to exclusively pump. Well I also have a 2yr old and I am a student so pumping constantly while taking care if my 2 kids was not working. I started getting an infection and decided to switch to formula. I have regretted it since the first bottle and want to breastfeed again. It has been a week and I used my manual pump today and got about half an ounce from both sides. I have an Ameda Purely Yours double electric pump as well as an EvenFlo manual. Aside from pumping a lot, I have no idea how to get my supply back, or how to get my baby back to breast. Any help is so appreciated
