    Although Chloe is FF I like to get her on the breast every day which she has always enjoyed and taken some milk.

    The last few days when I've tried she wont latch on she keeps her mouth wide open and looks at me like I'm putting poison in her mouth.

    Does this mean she doesnt want it anymore?

    I don't have any advice unfortunately, but I wanted to reply :hugs: Ally only goes on once or twice a day too...he still definitely prefers boob though so always goes on quite well.

    i guess because she has to work for the milk in your boob to get it flowing, where the bottle just flows, she is maybe waiting for it just to flow. I would try expressing a little as you get her latched or just before and have milk on the nipple, and see if that will stimulate her to suck.

    Yeah alot of the time when Caitlyn had formula I would have to bring the hind milk through for her to show ANY interest in my breasts. Now she's just fine.

    I would try getting Chloe on you more than once a day or you'll dry up I suspect?
