My daughter is 5 months old and I have been exclusively pumping for 3 months. I made the stupid decision to put a bottle in her mouth at 6 weeks and she loved it! So much so that she refused to bf. I have been so depressed about the whole ordeal because breastfeeding was the most wonderful experience I have ever had. I would do anything to turn back time and do over!
I have tried to get her back on the breast but she cries when she gets close to my breasts and I have purchased nipple shields and its not working. she will latch on briefly with the shields but she then figures out that its not her bottle and begins to cry.
Is there any mothers out there that has gotten an older baby back on the breast and is there any other techniques to try to get her back on?
