Dds refusing to eat. Its been 4 hours and 30 minutes since her last feeding. I tried holding her head on my breast to force her to eat but she won't take it. My bf gave her paci behind my back and she wants it. Ughh.

I'm sure she'll eat when she gets hungry. How old is she?

My son did this during one of his first couple days (right after first intro of the paci...) we were still in the hospital at the time so we got help from the lactation consultant... Ultimately we ended up just having to cry it out at the breast. I'd pretty much shove my nipple in his mouth, try to manually express some (colostrum at thr time) so that he could taste it in his mouth. Eventually he ate... It was really hard got both of us though (he kept screaming, I was really upset...)

Just don't give up!

Just keep trying... It's going to suck for both of you... Also, try swaddling her? My son screamed for a couple hours straight a couple weeks ago, he was too upset to eat and overtired. After I swaddled him, it calmed him down just enough for him to eat...

Expressing it into her mouth correct? Sometimes it'll help my son latch when I spray him in the mouth... It's kinda like "hey, over here! See there really is milk in there!"

I got her to nurse. Before I expressed milk she was laying on her side, well, I laid her on her back and she immediately took it. Idk why she didn't take it before. Why I had to express milk in order for her to take it?

Yay! Good for you for sticking to it! It may have just been a weird day, having the paci may have screwed her up a little but I'm sure you'll be able to get back on track!
