My daughter is nearly 5 weeks old. She has been breastfed with a nipple shield nearly the entire time and I'm trying to get her off of it. I've been working with a lactation consultant because she doens't feed often or for a long time. I thought my supply was fine but the consultant says my baby isn't gaining enough and I need to pump after each feed and syringe it to her. I hate doing it. It doesn't feel natural. I want breastfeeding to work but all my time seems to be dedicated to worrying about how much and how long she is feeding. She had gained around a lb. since birth. The consultant says she thinks my supply is low and she isn't getting what she needs. Anyone else gone through this? What is your opinion? I've been in tears over this so many days. I just wish I could breastfeed her and that be it but there are so many other things/worries involved.
