Q:

Is it ok to pump instead of breast feeding directly?..my baby is poor in latching



Please express milk and give it in spoon. And try to feed directly... all babies initially will struggle to latch. Help baby by holding baby properly and giving baby the whole of the dark part of nipple inside mouth. wipe after every feeding and even burp Wel.

as ur baby is 2 weeks old only...he is going to have problem with latching... everyone does ... don't worry...u can watch some videos for latching properly ..it will help and try to feed directly as much as u can.... if u r having sore nipple because of improper latching then u can express milk

try to feed directly my baby didn't latch properly till 6 months but I didn't try anything else..so there is always a chance the more u try the sooner ur baby will latch on

i try to feed directly..thnk u all...
