Help! idk what to do with my baby! *updated!*

Nursing has been a battle for the last 3 months. I feel defeated :( He is now refusing to nurse. Im thinking he wants the bottle instead.

I try to.pump and get very little.. like one ounce from both sides put together.

UPDATE: to make the situation more clear my baby has a minor lip tie. Its more work and he favors one boob after the other. Last night he was refusing both. I gave him a bottle of formula so he wouldn't starve and tried nursing again in the night. And he nursed...both sides! He still is this morning. I have been holding.him differently on the side he doesn't favor ...he was.still pretty fussy. This seemed to help a lot! I'm thinking he is teething!

I'm so glad he's nursing better. Please try to keep going... I am not judging AT ALL but I gave up after 2 months with DS and I regret it so much. I know it's hard. But there are so many people on this website and at your local LLL that can help you and offer you support. Don't give up. You and DS can do it!!
