I have a 3 day old little boy. He come out eating like a pro! Yesterday he had a circumcision. Ever since then he doesn't want to latch on :( I try and try, he will for two seconds and then start screaming. I have pumped, since I don't like formula. I keep trying to nurse for a least 30mins before pumping though. Anyone else have this problem? His temp is fine and he is peeing and pooping good too. Any thoughts?Answer Question

It's a very common problem for a baby boys to have trouble breastfeeding after circumcisions... it's a coping mechanism for them to kind of shut down after the trauma.
Keep working on it... hopefully he will perk up.
