Please help. Trying to breastfeed newborn.🥺 Our little boy was born on Monday all well and at over 42 weeks. Had a breastfeed straight away and 15 minutes 4 hours after but since then nothing. He didn’t have a perfect latch as he opens his mouth half heartedly and likes sucking on his tongue more than sucking breast😥
He’s been checked all over and seems fine but not wanting to wake fully to breastfeed. We tried stripping him, skin to skin. Now expressing and giving in syringe or cup but even straight after feed getting him onto bread doesn’t help. He just chomps the nipple few times and falls asleep.
Any idea why he is sleeping so much or sucking his tongue. Is that tongue tie? Any suggestions welcome. We are still at hospital but no success so far 😕
Thank you so much x
