Baby won't nurse during the day, but will at night or when sleepy. Pumping gives me dermatitis so I can't keep that up. What should i do?

You need to only offer the breast during the day and only when the kid is awake. Have someone else feed him a bottle if s/he won't take it from you. If this helps, never feed him closer than a half hour before sleep. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
