My baby is now 3 months old. I produced milk after 5 days of delivery,after that my baby refused to take my left breast because of a small nipple,I breast fed for one month but my daughter lost even her birth weight,then I started formula with breastfeeding, She prefers the bottle and takes the right breast rarely but I would like to breastfeed her exclusively. Can I do that? I got training in hospital too at Lmc, but no success, pls help me
This is a common issue for many women around the world. Breast refusal is distressing for a mom but the key is to find out the reason "Why".
I can provide you with a few tips on this to ease your mind.
· Is it really refusal or is he being a fussy eater?
Sometimes your baby is not refusing to feed but rather is fussy or hard to feed.
All babies have individual feeding habits. Some babies are easy-going, settle easily into feeds, feed well and come off satisfied until the next feed. Other babies take a while to get going but feed well once they start.
