Why won't my baby breastfeed?

Breast feeding. Make sure baby is positioned right, latching correctly. If the baby still refuses to feed make sure that your nipples are not inverted as it may require a nipple shield. Some infants are tongue-tied and have difficulty latching and sucking. It is poosible that your baby's temperament is such that he/she refuses to be too closely held and needs to be calm before latching on.
Be patient. With newborns, both mom and baby are embarking on a learning experience. Moms are learning how to nurse , and the baby is trying to figure things out as well. If the babyis a "reluctant nurser" try latching sessions of about 5 minutes, if you or the baby become frustrated, stop and offer your baby expressed breast milk. A lactation consultant will offer you great support. Don´t give up!
