Is she having trouble staying awake to nurse effectively? My son was like that.... he would latch on and promptly fall asleep and use my breast more like a soother/pacifier and not really suck and milk out... then when I took him off he would wake up and cry cause he was still hungry... and then we would start all over again. I took a bath with him and nursed him in the tub (several times over a period of a couple weeks...) that way he learned to stay awake and nurse... for whatever reason it worked. Hope that helps?

She just wants to comfort nurse! I would nurse her! There is more to breastfeeding then just eating! :)

I agree with the others need more info. How old is your baby? is she having trouble latching? etc.

I am with Sara, I need more info to answer better. What makes you think she is not eating? I'd love to help!
