My daugther is 13 weeks old and has only been breastfed. However, since last week she refuses to take my breasts to drink, during the day, she cries from hunger but fights the breast and refuses to latch on. After a huge struggle and me forcing her onto the breast she drinks and all is well. Is this normal? I don't want breastfeeding to be a mini war every time. I have to use nipple shield to breastfeed since my nipples are way to small to latch on. Please give me advise.

try not to wait til shes starved in an angry fit to eat before you try to feed she may to be to mad to latch on and then when she finally does she realizes what it is. if you wake her up maybe 30 minutes before feed time change her diaper get her good and awake then introduce the breast she may latch on without the fight. Also sometimes my little one wouldnt latch on unless it was skin to skin i put her down to a diaper and held her tight she would eat for 40 minutes to an hour on each side like this. hope this helps!
