  • Take all her clothes off and rub the bottoms of her feet while she nurses. It will keep her alert. You can also try a nipple shield

  • Call a lactation consultant or someone from le leche league. Having someone stop over to help show what to do is very helpful. Good luck to you! Don't give up!! Join a bfing group on here for additional and constant support and advice.

  • Is this a newborn or older child? Has she been sicke lately? It could be so many different things and without more information it is hard to give advice.
