Breastfeeding Advice

Clip to ScrapBook #1

My son is almost 8 wks. old and I have been breastfeeding him and occasionally supplementing with formula. Since yesterday he refuses to breastfeed. He will arch his back and flail his head back. There were a few times I did get him to latch on and the whole time he scrunched his face up and making very unhappy noises. I know he was hungry bc he had his fist in his mouth and was just sucking away. I finally just gave him a bottle bc I don't want him to starve!

I can't figure out why he's doing this all of a sudden. I have been sick with sinus problems the past couple of days. Could this have anything to do with it?

I'm just so upset and can't quit crying. I know he's just rejecting my breast, but it feels like he's rejecting ME!! I feel like such a failure bc I really wanted to breastfeed at least through the summer. Anyone have any advice?
