Whatever you do do not offer a bottle or pacifier. As pps have said continue to offer the breast. Some of the best times to get baby latched is before signs of hunger and when they are sleepy. Determination is key. You CAN do it!!!

My son is 4 1/2 months now and still BF it can be hard sometimes I wouldn't worry to much as long as she doesn't seem like she is staving or loosing a lot of weight. when you first go home a lot is changing and she can sense this. try not to get stressed out and talking to a Lactation Consultant like the others are saying is a good idea. most of the time they will come right to your home to help you so you don't have any added stress.
