    This is a really great (non LLL) resource. Lots of good info in there.

    Skin to skin contact is important, and some time and patience. Continue to offer and to make the breast a nice place to be. Don't force him, that will only make things worse. Breast compressions might help you to speed up the flow a little bit, this is an article written by Dr. Newman about how to do that.

    Keep trying!!

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.
