My son was born with low blood sugar so the nurses at the hospitble gave him a bottel right away..... which messed him all up cause after that he has never been able to latch on to my nipple. i started pumping every three hours as soon as we got home from the hopspitble to make my milk come in and it did the third day after birth..now 3 weeks later i still cant get him to latch he wont suck just kinda bites and then gets so mad and fustrated...I have tryed finger feeding and even getting more human like nipples but he just wont get it..so i have now been just pumping and giving it to him in a bottel and also giving him formula when he is still hungery i try him on the breast still at least twice a day but never any luck i have even taken classes and gone to groups but nothing helps!!..everyone keeps giving me a hard time (family) saying everyone can breastfeed and why cant I it's slowly driving me nuts what can i do please help i'm losing my mind!!
