Maddox is finally here :) He is now 10 days old. The hospital really left me on my own with breastfeeding. They told me not to worry about it until day 5-7. My son will not latch, it really makes him mad, and I did not get milk until day 5ish. Now I am pumping but only getting 1-2 oz with each pumping (about every 3-4 hours). I don't know if I should talk to my dr or if there's anything that can be done. We feed him formula and breast milk since I don't make much milk. I wanted to exclusively breast feed. The 'lactation consultant' at labor and delivery at the hospital doesn't offer any advice except 'some babies do better with formula since ur milk supply is not good'.
Should I talk to my doctor or anyone have suggestions? I don't want to give up.
