I have a 1 week old and for the past three days I have fought him to latch on. My breast are full but my nipples are small and hard for him to get any milk out. I use a nipple shield and he was not having that and was refusin it. I went to a LC and he done just fine latching on. When i get home it is a different world. I see the feeding cues. I try to feed him but he gets mad and throws his head back and starts screaming at the top of his lungs. I feel so bad that I feel like I am forcing him to eat.
I broke down and gave him some formula this morning. And I also pumped some milk for him and gave that to him. I am to the point of no return. It really stressful and heartbreaking. I want the best for my little man.
