my son was born a week early, slightly jaundiced, and had low blood glucose so the first thing the nurses did was give him bottles even though i had been very specific from the beginning NO BOTTLES. his latch was fine at first but then the nurses and doctors at the hospital told me that the only way i could get rid of his jaundice is if i supplement him. i wish they would have showed me how to do it with an sns or something but all they did was give me a bottle. they were just not very supportive at all of my breast feeding. so it messed up his latch. im still producing because i pump all the time i just would much rather feed him than give him expressed milk. the thing is, his latch isnt terribly off because i bought breastflow bottles when i realized he wasnt nursing right. he only needs to open his mouth wider. thats all. i nurse him and then pump right after so i can see how much he got cuz i know about how much i make and he is only able to get like half of it out. if i could just get him to open his mouth wider everything would be great. my supply is mostly fine, i just need him to be able to get it out on his own. i know they say tickle his upper lip and hell open his mouth but he wont! im getting really frustrated. i know the point is to give them the breast milk cuz its best for them but i miss the bonding. i loved it so much and i hate hate hate giving him a bottle. i just wanna be able to nurse my little angel. i love him so much but im just getting so frustrated that i'll just cry. i dont understand why he cant just open a llittle wider. it would fix everything. does anybody know any way to make him open up?
