I have been trying to breastfeed my baby since he was born. He is now 5 weeks old. My baby would suck on my breast 3 to 5 times, then fall as sleep no matter what I do to keep him awake. I've tried taking off all his clothes except diaper, I've tried tickling his feet, ear, cheek, chin.... you name it, I have done them all but all that does is for my baby to suck another 3 seconds then fall as sleep again. I ended up pumping my milk to feed him via a bottle. I just tried the SNS system (supplemental nursing system), however it took him 1 hour to suck out only 10 to 30 ml of milk!!!! What else can I do.? I really want to bf my baby.
PS. I think the baby latches on ok. My milk supply is low even after being on Reglan, Fenugreek.
