My DS is 4 months old. I have been EPing since he was 2 weeks old. BF was a struggle from the start and I decided BM is the best thing for him so I have been pumping. DS would BF/comfort suck occassionally which was ok with me. The other day he was acting hungry and I was about to pump so I tried to BF, DS just screamed and wouldn't even latch on. I don't know what happened . I have tried to latch him on since then but it is the same thing every time. When he does latch, as soon as he realizes it is my boob, he screams. I want to have some type of BF relationship, even if it is only comfort sucking.
My problem is that I work full time so I can't spend all day cuddling with DS. As soon as I get home I hold him. When DD goes to bed, I usualy hold him skin-to-skin until I go to bed. Co-sleeping isn't an option . What else can I do? My aunt told me to put Karo syrup on my nipples so the baby will have something sweet to suck on. I don't want that sticky mess. Please help - any suggestions are welcome. TIA.
