My LOis 2 weeks old today. Since past 3 days i have been giving him EBM combined with formula milk ( as he has lost weight since birth and mw suggested to top up with FM). I used to BF him when he was born but suddenly he has gone all grumpy and starts to cry when i put him on my breast. He hits his head on the brest and when he has taken mouthful of my breast hardly sucks one or two times then leaves it and starts crying and then again tries to take my breast into his mouth and cycle goes on. I feel such a failure as i can't get him on my breast even after trying everyday. At first i thought my method of latching is wrong but mw said it is good the problem is with haby not taking it. What really concerns me is that he was all fine from birth but has suddenly stopped taking milk frim my breast.
Just to add my nipples are very cracked and sore as in the beginnging my positioning was wrong. But it is all fine now. I thought this could be the reason but mw said no it isn't.
Sorry for long post but any help/advice would be very appreciated.
