I have been unable to breastfeed for 10 days due to medication I was on for abcessed mastitis. My eight week old has been on formula and a bottle but he has prior experience with a bottle. Considering that I have not yet had one successful day of breastfeeding in eight weeks, I am worried to death about the first time I try it again with him. I have noticed that he doesn't even try to nurse anymore...should I bottle feed him breastmilk to start? I asked the lactation consultant who has seen us and she said just to try it but I may have to go back on the nipple shield (that is what started most of the problems in the first place) Any advice is appreciated - thanks!
