So, I had my son on October 5th and for my entire pregnancy I fully expected and planned to breast feed. Well, the time after his birth comes to feed him and we find out that he can't latch on because I have flat nipples. For the rest of our stay in the hospital, I try to breastfeed him and end up having to use a nipple shield so he can eat.
Well, he still wasn't latching after two weeks, but I really wanted him to have breast milk. So, I started pumping and then giving it to him in a bottle. So far, it's working out well and his daddy is even able to feed him. I was wondering if anyone else has been put in this kind of situation and if anyone else exclusively pumps?
