Re: Newborn wont suck!

It might very well have to do with the early bottle supplementation. It's so much easier to get milk from a bottle...I've seen several babies who just don't want to suck/breastfeed after getting used to a bottle. I would think the best thing might be to try a SNS so that she's still getting the gratification but having to suck at the breast..but I'm not a IBCLC.
I'm sorry you're getting off to a rough start; it's still so early so try to relax and make sure that you're pumping enough to keep your supply up.
