it is ok priyanka dont be disappointed. as u said baby is taking feed with spoon. u can also try by pinching the nipple nd feeding her. also if she is taking feed with spoon pls try to express ur breast milk nd feed her with spoon instead of formula. and be calm nd try u can use nipple sheild as well.

Have a Lactation counselor help you get the latch corrected. You may be advised the use of nipple shield to help the baby latch.
