Sorry this is long, but I'm at a loss!
My son is currently two weeks and 5 days old.
I BF'd my son for about a week. We couldn't get the latch right, and my breasts hurt so bad that I stopped BFing and started exclusively pumping with a double electric pump (evenflo). After a few days of pumping, my milk supply started to decrease, and we had to start supplementing with formula. After a day or two, I gave up and put him completely on formula.
It's been about a week since I've breastfed or pumped or anything. I really want to try to BF again. I tried it this morning, and he latched fine on both breasts and sucked for about 5 minutes before crying (I assume because there's very little milk in there).
Is there still hope for me to breastfeed? Can I get my supply back up or has it been too long? Should I just let him try to BF before each bottle feed until he doesn't need the bottle anymore?
Thanks so much in advance, I'm really hoping this can work!
