I'm facing the same issue with my 7 week old daughter. earlier this was only in the evening ( not regular though) she was taking feed from me in the day and night. however since last night she has been crying when ever I try give her the feed she cries and move her head away. I'm expressing and giving her in a bottle I'm able to give her stomach full. i tried giving her during her sleep it worked earlier but today she doesn't open her mouth to latch. this is really worrying and depressing for me. please guide me through this.

he might also cry if he is not milk properly. see that he would get full. breastfeed is important but baby not being hungry is the priority. talk to ur doc if required.

Check ur diet, may be something you had in ur meal might be cause trouble for him. drink more water. hope his demands fulfil and withdraw from strike. :) . Bring worried can only reduce milk supply.

U can make her drink thru bottle if he is nt at all drinking. but keep continuing breastfeeding . I used to feed thru bottle first when she gets half full I breastfeed. also wen my kid was half sleepy n hungry breastfeeding was done, so as to ensure supply and breastfeeding habit also. dstway he will get used to both things simultaneously. bottle I used was philips avent .Also sterlise bottles properly. nan pro is best formula. its v important for kid to be full.

Hey Girl .. firstly what good is gonna come out of depression!!! babies have moods and they do such stuff sometimes.. may b u hv low supply.. but that can b corrected.. eat soaked methi seeds.. have like LOADS OF WATER ..there are lactogenic granules to have in milk plus lactare tblets three times a day n u will see difference in 2 to three days.. and BEFORE every feed have like a full bottle of water (thats whati did).. check your TSH levels.. that also can affect and PLEASE continue feeding your baby please... and for this first let him suck on your breast and then offer formula.. this way ur body will know that it needs to nake milk and your baby will be satisfied too.. Please don let anyone's comments (especially IF there is in law commentary) come in way of your firm conviction.. I have been down the rocky road of breastfeeding myself with no supportand that is why m saying feeling so much bad is gonna keep u from having nice time with your baby.. and not help ur supply also.. look at your baby stay happy because formula is also not bad food... and work on increasing your supply... YOUR SUPPLY WILL INCREASE if u work in a positive way towards it. be happy yaar.. and yeah CONGRATULATIONS!! on having a BABY! All the Best

practically you say you are not able to pump a lot which means even after baby gets latched he is unable to get enough flow and might be getting tired to suck as you are expecting a 2 month old to work hard for his food and they do get tired if they have to do so which is why he is reluctant to latch. best way is start formula milk so there is no compromise on his food in take. continue to pump as much as you can and try feeding using small spoon. as switching all of a sudden to formula milk might not be accepted by some babies smtimes. don't worry every individual is different so don't get stressed just work out diffrnt ways to feed him full. after all its baby's rule and demand which we hv to obey....
