Help! Breastfeeding nightmare

Ansia De - posted on 08/11/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




My daughter is 12 weeks old and have only been breastfed. Since last week she refuses to latch on the nipple. I have flat tiny nipples and can only breastfeed using nipple shields, i will place her at the breast and she will turn her head away and wrestle to get away from the breast. I've been told to wait a bit and try again but still same problem. She becomes so hungry that she cries but does not want to latch. I have tried every holding position that I know of and nothing. Please help! I don't want her to cry for food and I don't like the wrestling. I even tried different nipple shields and same problem.
