Newborn wont suck!

Please help.

My newborn won't suck for longer than 2-3 sucks then pulls herself off or her suck goes soft. She was born 4 weeks early but massive at 7lbs, 8oz so they didn't consider her preemie. I did have to supplement in hospital with a bottle for the first 2.5 days to get her glucose levels up. Now I pump and give her what I pump through a syringe and my finger.

Sometimes she will latch fine, other times she flips out and won't take it.

I'm so frustrated and just want to nurse my baby!
