I really wanted to breastfeed my baby, but i keep running into problems. First he wouldnt latch on, so my husband went out and bought me the Medala Nipple Shields for inverted or flat nipples. (i have flat nipples, not completely flat but bad enough to where he has trouble keeping it in his mouth)...but i wasnt even able to put that thing on....So now he went and bought me the Avent Breast Shells. Today is my first day using them so i hope they work to protrude my nipples.......
But i have a second problem. Im worried that im not producing enough milk. For a week now iv been pumping. Then last night i was able to only pump 3 oz of milk, that was from BOTH breasts. Iv heard that the pump suction doesnt compare to an infant, but it still make me worry. My son has never nursed from me for more than 20 min before.
Has anyone else here had this many problems trying to breastfeed theyre baby? It saddens me sooo much.
