Answer:
donot lose hope on breast feeding you will be able to do it. But you have to be little patient. For this, firstly, try to put the baby to the breast as often as possible (every 2-3 hours at least). Even if the baby isn’t feeding, have skin-to-skin time. Keep the baby close to your body as much as possible; touch his cheek with yours this will also help. Or try using a pump or hand express for 10-15 minutes on each breast 4-5 times in a day. Baby may not like to suck so for that you can first take out milk with the help of breast pump and then put baby on breasts or take out milk and use the feeding bottle to feed your milk. All in all, continue trying to breast-feeding, as this will ensure healthy growth of your baby. Hope this helps. Here is a blog that would help you in increasing breast milk supply. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/9-tips-to-increase-breast-milk-supply-in-lactating-moms/812 Hope this helps. Take Care
