So, ds has been fighting the breast for quite a while now (2 mo off and on). Things got better for a few days then yesterday everything went back to square one. He latches on but only stays latched for a few seconds (sometimes a couple of minutes) before pulling off. When I latch him back on the same happens. He doesn`t cry just doesn`t seem hungry. The only time he actually empties my breast is early in the morning. He just snacks through the day.
Tonight I broke down and gave him a bottle of formula thinking he must be hungry. He reluctantly ate about 2 oz and went on playing with the bottle. He was not hungry.
I`m so confused. I actually told Dh that it would be a miracle if he stayed latched for 5 min. He doesn`t wet as many diapers as he used to, but still about 5 a day. He poops 2-3 times every day. His poos were very green and mucousy for a while than returned to nice and yellow for a couple of days (he was eating better too) then again back to green yesterday. His weight gain slowed down significantly too. (about half of what he`d been gaining before).
I sooooo want to bf him but this is getting too frustrating. I cry a lot too.
TIA and sorry for being so long
