Quoting MunchkinWrangler:" First of all newborns dont always stay latched for long. You need to help them latch on again. Many times ... [snip!] ... eats. Feed them as much and as often as they please. They need it to grow! I'd stop the bottle of you intend to breastfeed."
I saw a lactation consultant and everything and my son just wouldn't. He'd stay latched for 3-4 seconds then shake his head away, scream, wiggle, anything to get AWAY
from the breast. I would sit and try to feed for 2 hours until I gave up and tried again for an hour. This went on for days until he was literally starving to death crying every 10 minutes for close to 13 hours so I gave in and pumped. He breastfeeds NOW 3-4 times a day but still uses the bottle, lol. Before I started pumping though he wouldn't breastfeed period. I felt bad starving him so I pumped. He breastfed fine int he hospital too, which is weird. But he goes days without being able to stay on so either something is wrong with me or he's just difficult. I can't let him starve though. He lost a whole pound in just 3 days
