My newborn (6 days old) doesn't suck my breast much when she latches on (rarely latches on). She might suck 1-2 times and then just sits there, sleeps or cries. I was able to get her to latch on and breastfeed briefly after she was born in the hosptial, but she went 24 hours without a wet diaper at home (wouldn't breastfeed, getting dehydrated), so I started pumping my milk and giving it to her in a bottle. She easily feeds from a bottle, but I want to breastfeed her. I talked to a lactation consultant and she couldn't get her to breastfeed either. Why won't she suck when on the breast? She sucks my finger.
How many ounces of breast milk should she get per feeding?
