This is my third time around and should be experienced with breastfeeding but my son who is now 6 wks old and I are just not getting this down. First, it was because I had flat nipples so I used a nipple shield which helped bring them out and now we are without it but seem to have a huge latching problem. I continue to stop and try again with latching but he is used to using a bottle nipple (I think). I supplement him w/ formula because he is so hungry. Now, I feel my milk supply is not enough for him and my nipples are soooo sore/cracked. I want to end the supplementing but do not know how without starving my lil one.
