Advice for success with bfing after EP?
Wed, 02-05-2014 - 10:18pm

My baby is 3.5 months and I have been EP. We tried lactation consultation, they said he was an imposter. No problem with latch, appeared to suck, but did not transfer any milk. They said he should be able to fb when he was older and to keep offering him the breast several times a day. But between pumping and feeding, I didn't keep that up. So now when I try to bf, he doesn't know what to do. Ironically, because I have streamlined my routine to pump while feeding, he does equate seeing my breasts with eating!  Has anyone been able to bf with older baby and do you have any suggestions?  Thanks!
