First time mom to a week old.. NEED HELP/ ADVICE! ):
I am a first time mommy and my son is a week old today.
Right when he came out he breast fed amazingly, I never hurt when he latched on he would get full and I would leak and breast feeding was great..
I had to have a c-section and one night I was heavily medicated.. fell asleep and when they tried to wake me up to breast feed, no one could wake me up.. I guess.. and after that.. He won't latch on and I didn't have a pump when I was in the hospital and now my flow is starting to get less and less..
He still won't latch, he cries when I try and get him too and when I pump it's enough for maybe one feeding if that and that's usually on my first pump of the day..
so what can I do to help him latch on and what can I eat or do to keep my milk here or maybe get more of it.. I have cried several times over having to give him formula and can't forgive myself for not being able to wake up.. (when I know it's not really my fault but I still can't help but blame myself.)
Any advice would be great! Sorry, I rambled and made this long.
