My son is 9 days old and we have been exclusively breastfeeding since he came out of NICU 2 days after delivery. I am not having any problems producing milk at all. The problem is he doesnt stay latched on like he is supposed to. He also bites down when he does feed. I have been prying him off when he bites and readjusting him every time but it isnt getting any better.
Any advice?? We have been going to a lactation support group and of course he does exactly what he is supposed to when help is around but as soon as we get home he is back to his old tricks again. I dont want to give up on breastfeeding, but am close to just pumping and bottle feeding him because it hurts so bad and he fights me so much to stay latched on to the breast.
