My baby was born large, 9lbs 5oz and had low blood sugar and was fed some formula and then hooked up to an IV in the hospital. We had a lot of trouble with getting him back to breast and now that he is home it is an ordeal.
He gets to the initial stages of hunger and we put him to the breast and he bonks his head against the breast, trys a latch but slips off. Most of the time, we can end of getting a latch after about 45 minutes of trying (and calming the baby as he gets frustrated and starts to cry). I don't know what I am doing to cause the problem and my milk supply isn't coming in as expected (It has been 6 days and I don't think all my milk is in).
I am not getting any sleep, because he feeds and then stops and maybe sleeps for an hour or so before we have to start the whole ordeal again. Is there a better technique? I noticed a nurse-in and I might be willing to try, but my c-section makes staying still in bed very difficult...
