Hello everyone

I am a mother of 1.5 months old baby. Whenever she cries I also cry alot. I feel guilty because she needs milk but I am not able to give her because milk supply is low and I have to give her formula milk and she doest like it. Maybe because of taste or maybe someother reason. Pls suggest how to control my emotions I feel bad and cry

Babies have a strong instinct to breastfeed and their instincts tend to be at their strongest when they are held close to the breast in skin-to-skin contact. Try holding your baby next to the naked breast without pressure to latch on (attach to the breast).

If your milk is not being removed sufficiently, you may experience engorgement, which makes it harder for your baby to latch on and breastfeed. Gently hand express a little milk before feeding to soften the breast.
