My baby is six days old. She's had a hard time latching on and she fights me, throws her head from side to side, and when she has a good latch either screams and spits it out or takes a few sucks and stops.
She also bloodied both nipples. One wasn't so bad and is recovering, the other had scabs which she sucked off and now can't seem to produce much even though I can feel it's full.
After baby spat up blood (mine) and I understood what was happening, I started pumping for her, and only feeding her off the relatively whole breast. I've given her formula twice - she doesn't care for it - but she downs the expressed milk. My nipples are so painful it's hard to even look at her when she's hungry. What can I do? Is this all worth it? My first daughter bf for 6 months and although I was sore for a while she was a little eater and never drew blood.
