My son is 6 weeks is old and have been having latching problems. So I have been pumping and giving in a bottle. I am able to meet his needs (at times give him a couple of ounces of formula if absolutely necessary). I occasionally bf him directly but it always hurts. Moreover if I bear the pain and feed him for an hour, he never empties my breast and I feel full soon. He's never been contented with me whenever I try to bf him directly.
I was wondering whether a nipple shield would help? If yes, where can I get them and I am using a bigger flange for the hospital grade electric pump.
Please help me.
