I got my milk yesterday and have been bfig my by baby since she was born 3 days ago. It got difficult for her when she was trying so hard to find collustrum and just wasn't getting it. :( She lost 6 percent of her weight, so not too big of a deal. However, since I got my milk, she has had maybe 2 good feeding where I know she emptied out my breasts. BUT even though she knows this, she WON'T try to latch on anymore. It got so bad last night because she had her first good feeding at 1 in the morning but was soooo fussy afterwards. She didn't sleep or want to eat until 6 in the morning and it was non stop crying. She was only happy if I was holding her. Finally, my husband had to go get formula. She drank the little bit of formula he made for her, and slept like a baby. Afterwards when she woke up, I offered the breast and she took it beautifully. Then 3 hours later, refused my breast again! After 4 hours of not wanting to eat, (She was sooooo sleepy!!) she had 2 ounces of formula and ate that. Why would she not take my breast before any formula was ever offered? I finally got my milk and thought I would not have problems having her drink it. Is all hope lost? How do I get her to want to try and drink from my breast?Answer Question
