My little girl is almost 4 weeks old, and I had my target set in my mind to BF her until at least 3 months. I've found it quite hard but was proud I battled through and things seemed to be bearable. I was intending to have nothing other than breast for the first six weeks, but was advised by different midwives to offer a dummy for various reasons, and that it was ok after two weeks to introduce a bottle a day for my DH to give an expressed feed so I could catch up on sleep. Over the last few days baby has been fussing at the breast, she goes on for a few minutes then starts pulling away and crying. The other day we battled through it and she kept going for over an hour, but didnt seem satisfied at all and cried as if she was still hungry. I thought I'd top her up with a bit of formula but she gulped down a whole 3 or 4oz so it was as if she'd got nothing from the breastfeed at all. I've been trying to pump to keep on top of the messed up feeds or bottle feeds, but I just can't find the time to keep up with it all, from what I've read she probably has bottle confusion and has become lazy with latching to breastfeed. She doesn't open her mouth wide enough anymore, I try over and over again to relatch her but I just end up sore and she ends up crying. I'm annoyed if this is the case as I was advised by midwives it was ok when I was going to avoid any bottles etc for fear of this happening. Just wondering if anyone has managed to get their LO back to beast feeding after something like this? I'm gutted to maybe have to give up so soon but finding it so stressful watching her fuss and cry when I try breastfeed, and keep having to give up and give her a bottle which is probably not helping things at all but I don't know what else to do when she's hungry and can't seem to feed from me.
