Child goes to sleep after latching on I was initially having problem with milk production so had to give my child topfeed. After trying to feed baby with spoon finally had to start using bottle. Have started breastfeeding . .child is 2 months old .. But the problem is as soon as she latches on she falls asleep within 5 mins . Waking her up is next to impossible n when I unlatch her she starts crying badly but the moment I let her suckle she falls asleep . . Have even tried to let her cry for 10 mins hoping she feeds properly but this has not helped . She does this all day long finally I end up giving topfeed. Can someone plz help ?

Try avoid the ambience of place you feed her to be quite or dark. As it may help her falling asleep. You can feed her expressed breast milk if she takes it. It'll help in same way. Regarding using any formula feed kindly consult with the paediatrician
