I had problem bfing a few days of lo being born he was losing weight and i had bad nipples so i've been expressing and feeding lil one from a bottle for about 2 weeks now. For some reason today he didn't want the bottle so i gave him my breast and he latch on and ate but when it was time for him to feed again he freaked out and didn't latch on i want to start feeding him from my breast again. i was wondering if anyone went from expressing only to bfing again.
I wasn't exclusively expressing but I was expressing a LOT and LO got a bit lazy and stopped latching on at one point, and I was worried I'd have to just express. However she did get the hang of it again. I think you're doing the right thing, ALWAYS offering the breast, trying your best to latch on. Skin to skin might help like you probably did in hospital. If he won't take the breast, give him his milk from the bottle and try again next time - don't give up, keep trying the breast and have lots of close contact with your baby. xxx
