I'm a first time mom n decided to breastfeed my daugther(she's 9 days old) but there was a prob with that . . . when she was born and I tried to feed her she seemed to give me a prob with latching on and when she did she wasn't really getting anything from me . . . The hospital had me start feeding her formula because I wasn't producing enough milk for her. Now that I'm home I still try to breastfeed her but not always does she want to latch onto me. She fusses sometimes like she doesn't want it but I know she is hungry. Other times I try to pump but I don't get much out of my breast and I'm worried that I wont be able to produce enough milk for her. I'm trying to get her to be more comfortable with breastfeeding but doesn't seem to be working. I'd rather breastfeed her than formula but I don;t know what to do. Any ideas on how I can make breastfeeding going better for me and my daugther!?!? Am I trying too hard to make this work?!!? Help!!!
