Baby not breastfeeding
I had a preterm baby girl of 32 weeks who was in NICU for 5 weeks. During her time in NICU she was fed my expressed breast milk with a specialized spoon. I was asked to try breast feed but she was too weak to suck. After sometime she started to suck a little. But since she wasn't putting on much weight doctor prescribed feeding her with expressed breast milk in a feeding bottle. Now she refuses my nipple and even if she tries sucking she isn't able to latch. How can I make her breastfeed? Please help.
