My baby refused to latch on after 2 1/2 months of successful nursing.
Today my 2 1/2 month old baby did not want to latch on after successfully nursing 5 times throughout the day.
She arched her back and screamed. I tried different positions, each breast and the same results.
After much frustration for both of us, my husband gave her a bottle of breast milk which she took without a complaint. I am very upset because I don't want to give in to a bottle every time she exhibits this behavior. I have used breast shields this entire time without any problems.
Please help. Emily

baby refusing the breast
Due to major health problems my son was bottle fed in NICU and I have continued to pump and bottle feed my EBM for every feed.
Now almost three weeks since birth I've been given the go ahead to breastfeed but my little guy absolutely refuses to breastfeed.
I'm so emotionally distraught and this site has given me some hope. I have breastfed three other babies without any issue this time has just been heart breaking but I will keep trying for as long as I can
