I gave birth on the 13th May and had always thought I would breast feed, however I have an inverted nipple and it caused so much heart ache and pain that I have decided to bottle feed.
I breast fed for the first 2 days and baby would only accept one breast leaving that one very painful and baby would not even entertain the other one.
The midwifes were fab and really tried to help me breast feed but it is not to be.
I have put baby on SMA gold and now have incredibly painful breast as the milk has come in. I am in pain and upset about not been able to feed how I expected, but actually realise now that bottle feeding is not such a bad thing. My baby is happy and I am now happy.
So anyway any tips on engorged breast and what are the dos and don'ts to bottle feeding. All help gratefully appreciated.
By the way - sorry what am I like - I had a little girl called Caitlin, weighing in at 8lbs
