Hi. I think you should continue trying. Feed as much as you can. Express your milk and give too.

hi anon, me also faced the same with my baby. ur baby need strength for sucking. keep trying to feed her.. she need time to learn also. for me it takes 10 days to feed my girl properly. express ur milk and give ur baby through small spoon or paladai with high care n hygienic. don't use bottle or dropper. and don't give ur baby fm.
