I am frustrated because my DD is not interested in breastfeeding. She started out VERY interested and willing to suckle, but after she got dehydrated and had to be bottle fed...she is no longer interested.
I've spoken with 2 different lactation consultants so far. One has told me to continue pumping and bottle feeding her my breast milk then try a few times a day and see if she wants the breast. That is all fine and dandy, but I am constantly engorged because I cannot pump fast enough to keep up with her hunger.
The second one I spoke to told me to take bottles away and try spoon/dropper feeding. That doesn't work because DD gets so frustrated and hungry that she screams her head off until she gags herself or spits up....so I am at my wits end and ready to just throw in the towel and formula feed. Nothing I envisioned is going as planned....I am tired....exhausted is actually closer to how I am feeling and extremely frustrated. Help....please.....someone?
