Try feeding her again. If she doesn't feed I'd pump. It isn't easy to breastfeed so I'd continue to try and get her to latch. Good luck

Its up to you. Maybe try having her latch now if you want to breastfeed.

I think you should give it a try, if she won't latch then pump and give the milk that way. My son didn't have a problem with my milk it was the latching that was the problem.

Since you've been bottle feeding for 5 days, she will more than likely take a few s***s at breast and start to cry. She has been getting immediate gratification from teh bottle and she'll have to work at getting milk from the breast. If you want to breast feed, I'd pump and feed it to her from the bottle
