Is it true that if the baby does not take breast milk initially and doesnt latch he will not take it later. my baby is 3 months old and is on formula milk and i have flat nipples. i havnt given up still and i am still trying but i do cry often when my milk is rejected.

Yashoda Sharma

It happens dear. babies are very smart they take the easy thing.. bcz sucking takes effort that's why they reject. if you don't feed him lactation will also decrease. so better dnt gv formula milk. let him cry when he will be hungry he and will knw that only breast milk he has to take he will surely start taking your milk. but you have to try hard and DO NOT OFFER FM AT ANY COST. you try using nipple shield for flat nipples.


thanks yashoda. will.try doing it today
