Dear Moms!

I have been exclusively pumping for 10 months. My baby was born premature. At first i fed him with both breast and bottle (with my milk) but after 3 months my baby stopped eating for 2 weeks and since that time i have been feeding with bottle because he doesnt want breast. When he tries, vomiting reflex appears. I am tired of expressing milk and want to breast feed, I'd like to try. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed? Any success stories?

Hi magda89 and welcome to Mothering. There are plenty of moms who have succeeded in getting their babies back on the breast. So please don't feel it's not possible. 


Anyone have a success story to share?

have you tried using nipple shields? I don't have personal experience with this- but I do have a friend who got her premie to finally get on the breast using nipple shields
