I am having a difficult time. My daughter is 12 days old. She won't latch. I started pumping but it seems my milk is already going down. I feel so detached from her cause I'm spending so much time pumping. Should I feed her formula?

I breast feed for the first 5 weeks exclusively then saw a decrease in my milk supply which first scared me. I saw a lactation specialist and she helped me a lot. I personally wasn't getting enough rest and the decrease made me stress which didn't help either. I did start using formula, I mixed it with the breast milk but then after a week my supply was up again. Best advice reach out for help

Have you been in touch with a lactation consultant/professional? Someone may be able to help you assess the situation and help you figure out why your baby isn't latching and help you resolve the issue.
