she wakeup time, you will feed. sacking 2 or 3 times she has continued.

Same problem I was having, she used to cry whole night, but not even touching my right breast, I d c section, my mother in used to feed her fm, wen I came home I did hot water massage on my breast, than she started drinking from right one, journey was difficult.

ur breast must b hard fr baby to suck do a massage in round and round motion wit hot oil followed by keeping hot water towel ovr it and than try... all d best

Hi, I had the same problem. Check whether your nipples are flat. If it's flat then baby may find difficult to latch. In that case you can use nipple puller and then make your baby to suck(I used pigeon nipple puller) You can also use nipple shield. If you have engorged breasts then also baby won't feel easy to latch. Hand express some milk to make your areola soft and then make your baby to latch. Hope this info helps. Good luck :)

same prblm with me bt my baby is 3 months old

I had same issue, my baby was least interested to latch left breast. I spoke to my doctor, try hot bag massage on that breast before shower and squeeze some milk. then wash off that breast with cold water. This way that breast will become soft. Give the breast to feed baby that he/she prefers first, after baby is bit satisfied try with the one he doesn't prefer. Or do vice versa. slowly they will latch on both

Sangeetha.... Hot water massage will do. Den wen baby is very hungry start from the breast in which baby is nt latching. Don't give up. Try everything. Dis will b OK in few days. I also had d same problem.

hi,  i have same problem too, so i used brest pump. it solved my problem. try it best of luck
