Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
1 year old baby
The same happened to me. Please do not stop and continue to give your own milk. Keep trying. Do not give bottle. If you must give formula give from spoon. You can also consult a lactation expert.
but the problem is my nipples are not out that's why he is not able to latch is there technique to bring nipple out

asmita das yes. you can express your milk & give with spoon n bowl , n you can use nipple shield also . so your nipples would be out .
congrats dear...god bless u
Hello Asmita, I had same nipple problem. I was not able to feed until I saw a video of "perfect latch" from this article..
"the best guide you will ever find on latching and breastfeeding" there is link for video in this article.. under breastfeeding, select "a perfect latch" .. surely this video 'll help you to overcome your problem
first of all congrats!! I was having the same problem. problem is you may have engorged breast and that may be a reason for the baby to improper latch. flat nipples may also be a reason.dont know which is your problem. if you have flat nipples, then try nipple puller. I used pigeon nipple puller . if you have engorged breasts, then try to express few milk so that the nipple portion will be soft which will help the baby to latch the nipple. try it out. also see some proper latching techniques on YouTube . happy parenthood!!
I also had same flat nipple problem....
use nipple shield....
It worked for me......
Thank you Radhi anand your suggestion helped me a lot.now my kiddo is latching successfully but because the milk is less coming out he is not full and my SaaS can't see him half stomach she gives him bottle no matter how much I resist.
that's great to hear Asmita.. Happy for you..only way to increase our breast milk is to feed, feed, feed..
you can get a breast pump and start pumping your milk.. initially you may be pumping less milk but it will trigger your body to produce more milk due to stimulation..
just be relaxed and stay happy..
