I have a 10day old baby girl (first child, normal drug free birth). She has not achieved attachment on my breast yet. We have had to commence bottle feeding with my breast milk as she just wasn't getting enough. She looks for my breast, suckles, normal cues etc but never latches on.
Im starting to think that a lot of the issue may be my stress & anxiety levels, nit allowing me to relax. I suffered a traumatic event about 3mths ago, which I feel is contributing to the anxiety.
I have seen a lactation consultant and been told I'm doing everything right, that I just need to have patience & it will happen.
Does anyone have any tips or stories on how I can try to get her to attach?
Maybe you had a similar issue you could share which will help me feel better?
