My baby was born at 29weeks via emergency csec and has been tube and bottle fed to date. By 6weeks i could get him to latch but he was to weak to suck. He's been bottle fed ebm since his tube was removed. Because he was so small i was advised to use a nipple shield, which he took to easy. He has now reached his due date and is 11 weeks old, but will no longer latch onto my breast without the nipple shield. My milk has run low and i have to top him up with half as much formula. I've tried all the ways to increase my milk supply except the medicine route as that would interfere with his medicines apparently. How to i get him to feed full time? on bottle he does 90ml every 2 to 3 hours, if i try to breastfeed him, i cant get him off as he is constantly hungry.
