Help! I am a new mom to 8 day old Rose, who is having a very hard time breast feeding. We were forced to supplement her at the hospital since she was having blood sugar issues and I was in post-op. Since then she has been fighting breast feeding every day. I have met with a LC and had some luck for a day. I tried using a NS which helped for a few days but now she refuses the breast and will scream for an hour before my husband and I worry and feed her pumped milk.
I tried not supplementing had output issues and weight loss which had the Dr recommend supplemental feedings again.
She sleeps all the time and is difficult to wake. When I do wake her she fights feeding until she has worked herself up so much that we can't console her.
I don't know what to do next.
