Im having to switch between breast milk and formula because Im not producing enough :( But there are times when I try to breastfeed and he rejects me - crying so hard you think he hasnt eaten all day. I try calming him but it doesnt work when hes "rooting" around or stuffing his fists into his mouth. Ive been using a nipple guard too because he cant really latch onto my breast directly.
How old is the baby and how often did you give him a bottle.....very few babies don't have a problem switching between breast and bottle most likely if you gave him too many bottles he is now refusing breast regardleas of how much milk you have
