So I am so sick of pumping out my milk. I want my baby girl to be able to latch onto me.
Here is the problem, my nipples are flat and I can't get enough into her mouth to breastfeed. I had to give her a bottle when she was born so she would stop losing weight or she would have to stay in the hospital another night. Now she knows how easy it is to get her milk out of a bottle and cries when I put her to the breast. I have tried a nipple shield and took from that for a few days and then refused it everytime after. I started pumping out my milk so I wouldn't have to give her formula. I have been pumping for 3 weeks and I am tired of it.
I know there are women out there who have been able to breastfeed with flat nipples. Does anyone have any advice for me?
