My baby, whom I was breastfeeding and bottle feeding at the same time from last 4 months, has totally refused my feed from last 1-2 week. I was giving her two bottles per day, one early morning and one before sleep at night. 2weeks back I gave her a bottle in the mid of the night as well. I did it only two nights but after that she refused to take my feed even in day time. My feed supply is decreasing day by day. I'm using breast pump as well to keep my Bfeed coming, but it's really hard to use as it's hand pump. She takes my feed durning night when she's half sleep but in day time she pushes me away. I'm taking meds(hi-lacta) to increase my flow. I also switched her on new born size feeder as it has one hole and has less flow so that she can adjust to my feed. Also doing skin-to-skin therapy but nothing is working. I want her to hate bottle and come back on my feed. Please help me please. I can't sleep any more because of stress. She also has two teeth by birth. She bites if I forcefully put my breast in her mouth. And please recommend me any professional group as well. Thanks
