    So have you been pumping for the past 6 days? if so how often have you been pumping? has your son had Formula as well as pumped milk? What kind of troubles did you have on the first day with nursing? Pain? have you met with a LC or local LLL Leader? what happens when you attempt to nurse now?

    have you tried just holding baby on your naked chest when he is not hungry, just nuzzle, lots of skin to skin contact, keep him in only a diaper and you naked from the waist up, carnk the heat up, cuddle up and stay like that all day if possible, hold him at or near your breast when he is satisfied and happy, not hungry or tired, encorage him to nurse by making it available at all times....

    what type opf trouble did you have the first day of nursing on the 24th, to make you say
    it was not going very well so nurse suggested supplement
    also have you been pumping these past 6 days to maintain supply/bring in your milk?
    what kind of pumping schedule are you on?
    how much have you been pumping output wise vs what he takes in BM / formula wise?
    have you met with a LC or local LLL Leader?

    you can totally do this it just may take some time and the approach will vary based on the situation. we're all here to help if we can
