I am a new mom, baby is 16 days old! Breastfeeding has been a major challenge to say the least.
Baby girl is really having a hard time STILL with her latch, and is very fussy on my boob. I give up easily and give her a bottle of the pumped breastmilk. She also needs a nipple shield or wont even latch at all. I find that her mouth really just doesn't open up wide enough to really get in there and sometimes shes more amenable to the boob and other times she literally just rejects it.
It's all feeling so hard and I want to know that I am still going to have time to establish this for us.
I want to know that its not setting us back TOO much by giving her some bottles here and there.
