I just wanted to know what everyone's opinions on the nipple shield are.
My LO is only 5 days old and I am having a really hard time getting him to latch on correctly. I went to a lactation specialist today and I thought it helped but once I got home, it stopped helping. I am really stressing out about this cause I really want to breast feed him but I feel like he isn't getting enough to eat. I know a lot of the problem is that he'll get latched on and then after a few minutes I need to take him off because I'm hurting so bad and get him to latch again and he won't eat after that. So he really only eats for about 10 mins at a time. Both of my nipples are extremely sore, my right one cracked a little yesterday and bleed a small amount today.
I really feel like a failure about this. I know part of it is that I am getting a little of post pardon depression. Please help!!!
