Coping With Babies Who Refuse To Breastfeed?
What should I do? breastfeeding..
To help answer your question, it is necessary to clarify how you feed your baby, whether using a pacifier, being fed using a spoon, using a cup feeder or in some other way?
Babies who often refuse to be given breast milk through the breast usually often experience nipple confusion, namely the condition of babies who are familiar with pacifiers and feel more comfortable breastfeeding using a pacifier than a nipple.
To make the baby comfortable again suckling through the breast directly, you need to try several ways and get used to it for a long time. so you need to be more patient.
temporarily avoid using a pacifier to provide formula or expressed breast milk. replace by giving milk using a spoon, cup feeder or pipette while introducing the baby to the mother's nipple.
at the beginning of getting used to the child may be fussy. This is natural because children are still in the adaptation phase.
if you need help, you can consult your doctor, or the nearest lactation counselor.
