So for the 1 st 3 weeks my baby nursed perfectly and I loved it minus the pain. Then 4 weeks hit and he started only nursing 10 min on each side and would scream after but refused to latch back on. My lactation consultant had me start giving him a bottle afterwards Bc he would scream bloody murder. He's now 7 weeks and things are only getting worse, he now will only nurse for 5 min on each side and sometimes refuses the second side. He also is fussing with the bottle and although he seems hungry he will only drink a 1/2 oz. I'm beside myself crying everyday all I want to do is nurse him but we seem to b getting farther and farther away each day. He's gaining weight but was not refusing the bottle before today. I'm lost I've tried everything he's even faking meds for reflux. I've tried switching sides, positions, nipple shield, leaning back, taking supplements, breathing, drinking water....... Etc. I feel like I'm fighting a losing battle anyone have this and have things turn around?
