i think i should give up

I am having a hard time getting baby to latch. He's totally not interested in nursing(pops off alot) and I pumped a couple hours after he nursed and got less than a 1/4 of an ounce. :cry

No you should not give up. Pumping doesn't yield what bfing yields. You should see an IBCLC lactation consultant. You should consider a sns or nipple shield and just keep on keeping on. Kellymom is your best source of info!

BFAR is totally different. My kids nursed a LOT. You can do both, too. Don't judge based on what you pump after nursing. Get a Supplemental Nursing System (SNS) from an LC and go from there.

You *can* do this. My kids never had nipple confusion and I was able to nurse and supplement with formula. Definitely see an LC who has worked with BFAR moms.
