you're not a failure, and I know how disheartening it can be and how it is to feel this way. You're trying to do the best thing for your baby.

Maybe your flow isn't as much as the bottle flow. have you tried pumping and feeding him breastmilk through a bottle? After 6 days of being in excruciating pain, I started to pump. In emergencies I'd breastfeed DS but he was so used to the bottle nipple that he'd have a really hard time latching on and he'd get frustrated. Maybe your DS prefers the breastmilk through a bottle.

I pumped for 4 months, if you want him to have the breastmilk, it's worth a shot.

also, if you've taken sudafed for your sinus issues, it dries you up a bit....that's what I used to help stop breastfeeding, maybe you're not producing enough to fill him up. Don't be discouraged about any of this....you're doing great.
