keep trying... do not give in when baby cries... try offering breast first every time baby demands feed... maybe you could visit a lactation specialist

thats ok. leave the bottle completely. ur body WILL make milk if u feed baby. the more u feed, the more the milk. meet a lactation specialist. she will be able to help h

before giving ur baby formula milk u would hve made her latch first even though u dint hve milk.. bcoz it was same with me.. I had no milk for 3 days before I started solid food.. but wen ever she was hungry I was told to made her latch first nd den give her formula milk.. after 5 days wen milk started to produce I stopped formula milk nd started giving mine..

make formula milk tasteless by adding more water so tat ur baby don like it ,den take ur milk in a spoon nd feed ur baby.. once it' gets the taste make ur baby to latch..

Sonali Shivlani

Do not give bottle to the baby. Try and feed the baby when baby is asleep. Also ensure that you feed when baby is not super hungry. You will need to keep trying as that will ensure that baby starts getting the habit. Also try and express your milk so that the supply is proper which will also interest the baby.

Dr. Mugdha Joshi

Try to give him a lot of skin to skin contact. You need to work on his latch. If supply has not increased then you need to stimulate the breast using breast pump and express milk religiously. But I would advice to see a Lactation Consultant soon.
