LO not eating out of one breast. Nadia :] Due May 13 (boy); 1 child; Ontario 83 posts

I cannot get my 4 day old to eat out of my right breast. It's rock hard and been leaking like crazy. I'm not sure what to do! Has anyone else experienced this?

It might be too engorged for LO to get a good latch. Try pumping or hand expressing a little to get it to soften up some.

My daughter was like that. I would keep trying. If anything, at least pump or hand express from that one.
Maybe try pumping first, then feeding your LO with that breast. Maybe your BM is coming out too quickly?

I tried hand expressing- he's back on it, thank goodness! Thanks for the help!
