Hi, i really hope someone can help me.
I have an 11 week old preemie and he was in the NICU for 7 weeks. He was on the bottle for about the last 3 weeks he was in the hospital and I was unable to breastfeed him directly because of his small size and I was taking medicine that didn't allow me to. Now when I try to put him on the breast he doesn't really latch on and gets really frustrated and starts crying and refuses to take anything but the bottle. What do I do?! I don't want to pump for the whole time he gets breastmilk, and my milk supply is going down rapidly andI don't know how to speed it up again. It's so frustrating and I feel like a failure for not trying hard enough, but I feel like I'm our of options. Can anyone help me? Please?
It would be so appreciated! Thank you all so much!
