I have a ten week old baby who is having difficulty with nursing. We have encountered more problems than successes I feel. After I got past sore nipples and engorgement, we did great for about 1 1/2 weeks. We discovered at 3 1/2 weeks of age that he has a severe milk allergy. I have eliminated milk from my diet. Things got better after that. I have been through and conquered a shortness of milk. For the last week and a half, my son has been not wanting to nurse. He will latch on and nurse on one side for 6 minutes and no more. The first couple of days I simply pumped the other side and let him be. He was extremely fussy. He would act hungry but refuse to nurse. I finally started giving him the rest in a bottle at the advice of my OB. I would then pump in order to keep my supply up. Today he has refused my breast all day and is also now refusing the bottle. I am not sure what to do. His pediatrician has not really been a lot of help and I am not sure that advice of my OB was right. Does anyone have any advice for me? I am despirit. I am going back to work in 3 weeks and I don't want to give up breast feeding until he is at least a year if I can. I feel like he is trying to wean himself and I dont' know how to stop him. Please help!
