Hi, my daughter is 4 months old and Breastfeeding as been a challenge from the beginning. First, she was a NICU baby, so the first thing that she got was a pumped breast milk bottle for about 6 days until she finally got to nurse from me.
She seemed like she was going to be a really good nurser, but she always seemed like she never really sucked hard enough. I have gone back and forth between the bottle and the breast so much that I think I might be confusing her, and I just want to breastfeed her, but she seems to just want the bottle. She is going through the whole 4 month fussiness stage right now, so at night it is extremely hard to feed her, right before bed mostly. I can't even seem to feed her at all, almost like she is impatient for the let-down, and she gets so frustrated that she won't take it at all. AKA- Resorting to a bottle. I don't want to give her a bottle, even if it is breast milk, because I want her to nurse from me, and not a bottle at all. What do I do?
