Any tips for re- introducing the breast? We went to bottle feeding because LO was not eating enough off of the breast to get both fore and hind milk and this was creating a lot of tummy problems. We went to pumping/ bottle feeding and no more tummy issues and she was just nursing at the night time feedings. However, two weeks ago she went through a low in her eating and cut out the night time feeding (great for us right? We got to finally sleep through the night!) But now that she hasn't had the night time breastfeeding she wants nothing to do with the boob, to the point if I get it in her mouth she starts screaming . Anyone else have this issue, of trying to re-introduce breast feeding? I have read that skin to skin helps and we have been doing that every night for the last week any other suggestions from people that have gone through this would be much appreciated Thanks!
Re: Help with breast feeding! - Went to bottle, now doesn't want the breast. Anyone else?
There is a Facebook group called Back to Breast that will help support you and offer other suggestions. Please keep in mind that there are some people that will tell you to stop giving the bottle and only offer the breast. These people believe after a few missed feedings baby will go back to breast. I have not seen this recommended in the Facebook group, but have seen it a lot by LLL advocates. I completely disagree with starving a baby in any circumstance, but especially in order to get him/her back to breast.
In the long run I had to tell my self it doesn't matter how she gets my breastmilk
