back to breast? update..update with question
Is it possible? I really miss the bond between us and he still pulls on my shirt and gets mad when I won't open them up lol.
But I don't have a pump and can't afford a new one..or is a pump even needed? I feel so lost
Update: so I was able to get my son to latch last night for a few moments and when he unmatched he had the biggest cheeses smile ever it made me feel awesome Lol
Update 2: so today I offered my breast after his bottle and he didn't pull away screaming. He looked in amazement as I hand expressed my very sticky milk. He licked it....and just snuggled into it. We will get there.
Update 2 with question: so he still really has no interest in latching. I talked with my lactation consultant ans she said its because I don't just drip. She suggested maybe a nipple shield could help with dripping some formula inside of it and she if he latches that way. She also said I need a pump so I can pump and up my supply. So I feel more discouraged now than before. Would a nipple shield possibly help? I think I may just take my loss though and feel proud I nursed him for 5.5 months
