Im really struggling with breastfeeding, Ellie isnt sucking well at all. When she was born she swallowed loads of fluid so has been really mucusy and hasnt wanted to feed really, shes also really struggling with sucking... I was trying to BF her at hospital but she just wasnt latching on properly and not sucking my nipples far enough into her mouth so shes made a big mess of my nipples so now im struggling more. We ended up putting her on formula at hospital cos she was starving and I felt really bad not feeding her, shes still struggling with sucking the teat but improving... shes still not taking the amount she shud be but its improving slowly. Each feed im trying her with my breast to see if she will latch on, also expressing a bit first to bring it through for her (which doesnt seem to be much cos they are so cracked and blistered)... Shes latching on but then gets lazy and lets it slip and isnt taking it back far enough, I just cant seem to get her to stay latched on properly. I just dont know what way to go about things, do i carry on trying to breastfeed & topping up with formula? im on day 3 and milk to come through yet. Will her sucking improve & has this happened to anyone else? So confused... sorry if all thats a bit of a blurb in a mad rush, if ive missed anything out then let me know. Could really do with some advice.
