My 3 month old son has been squirming at the breast. Initially he latches on strong then his suck almost immediately weakens, his latch loosens, and he starts squirming. He continues trying to suck, but it’s not strong enough to get any milk out. He is healthy and weighs almost 12lbs. I have had to supplement him with formula after each feeding since he was almost a week old due to low milk supply. I have tried everything to increase my milk and now taking Domperidone (which is supposed to be guaranteed to work), but now he is not nursing well. Any suggestions are welcome- Please help me! I have tried swaddling him, going in a dark room, eliminating distractions, and sing or talking to him, but nothing works. If this doesn’t improve my milk will completely dry up so any suggestions are welcome!!
