I had a similar problem Just pursue your feeding efforts n by the time he is 3 months , he will feed just fine, mine did... Try feeding when not too hungry n feed every 2 hours ... Let him get use to suckling

Hi Renu, Its good u r continuing with bf. Try to feed your baby when not hungry. Baby may get cranky first, but if u continue this ur baby may start sucking. Not pressurized baby nor u get under pressure. B positive. Still consult pediatric.

Hi renu, I too had a similar situation where I had to pump and feed my baby. And we gave him in bottle only.. Later he refused to have it directly from me. I was suggested to make my baby suck my index finger in such a way that my finger touches his upper palate. Allow the baby to suck for 10-15 times before feeding. This would also give the baby a feeling of sucking directly from us. Don't stop bottle abruptly.. Try to feed very often for short duration and pls don't get panicked if he cries badly. He should get the feeling that for milk, he should have it from u only,no other source is available

Hello renu and sumi, Even i faced the same problem with my daughter when she was 3 months, then my gynaecologist adviced me to change the position of feeding. And feed them while they are a sleep. My daughter used to feed only on left side and i used to feed her in sitting position, then i started to feed in sleeping position on the right. Just try to feed your kid while they are a sleep and change the feeding position. Hope this helps you. Take care.
