not an expert but that sounds like good advice! I'd also add offer when she isn't hungry so she can just snuggle up and comfort suck - might also help if she gets frustrated if there's little milk. Good luck!!
Hi - I have quite a positive experience of this, I thought I would tell you my story to show you it is possible and not tooo difficult -
I was hardly bf at all by the time dd was 12 weeks, she was mostly having formula. Dd would not latch on and if she did she would get v frustrated v fast. I ended up stopping the formula feeds and I bf till dd was 15 months, when she didn't want it any more. We had about 3 awful days at the beginning where I only offered boob and had to feed her formula with a pipette (to make sure she wasn't starving or dehydrated, this took ages) to wean her off the bottle but after that it was fine and she happily bf. I had thought I didn't have enough milk but I had plenty, just a slow let down. I was so pleased in the end that dd was bf again.
Good luck and it's great you decided to keep trying
well she had a 3oz feed at 9:45am and 2oz at 10:30...spoke to hv who said what i mentioned. she just latched on for 20 mins (10mins both sides) and she seems pretty content atm. i couldnt get hold of my hv before today so have been pretty much alone and feeling crap about it, feel very determined after speaking to her.
gotta keep a diary of the feeds (ff and bf) and she is coming to see me friday afternoon.
she is gaining weight fine (9lb 14oz at 6 weeks) but she has been on ff for 3ish weeks and 1 bf a day.
lotsa skin to skin etc is the way forward...we hae baths together most days so will offer a feed then too!
will ask hv about bf professional friday to check latch but as far as im aware its fine...no pain etc!
think im gonna go to the bf-ing group on a monday morning too!
me and dd will do this and get her back on exclusively!
