Hi, I'm new to the forum. I have to kids. My dd is two and the new member is my ds 5 wks old. I'm trying to breastfeed him; however, he's been a little lazy. everytime i give him the breast he doesnt want to wide open his mouth. what he does is that he put his mouth like he's going to eat sphagetties so when he sucks he gets half of my nipples and the pain i feel is unbereable. I even gets headaches. I dont know what to do. how do i make him to really open his mouth. My husband try to help me but my ds is stubborn and he even closed his mouth. what can i do i can barely touch my boobs. i cant even stand clothes touching them. oh forgot to mention i have big boobs. i'm ready to give up and just feed him formula. but my conscience doesnt let me cause i know how good is breastmilk for his health. but i dont know if he's getting enough milk. today i thought he had gases but i think he was hungry but if i give him breast beside getting them wrong he fall asleep and he takes forever. and because it hurts i cant stand having him in my breast no more than ten minutes. so i gave him a bottle of formula and he took 3oz and he finally slept for 2 1/2 hours.
any advices are welcome.
