    Default Crying at nipple

    I am trying to breastfeed my six week old daughter. Due to some weight concerns in the past, I also need to give her some supplemental formula. Now, she is crying at the breast when I try to feed her. I think it is nipple confusion. What can I do?

    Has she been successful at latching and nursing at all?

    How many bottles does she get a day? And how many times does she BFs?

    What is her weight and why do you say that she has weight gain issues?

    Could it be other problems such as gas? 6 weeks is when colic normally starts. My LO started crying at nipple when he was 6wo too, it was due to colic.
