Having a hard time breastfeeding! :(

Hi mommies!

I'm new here, just wanted to have "karamay", Hahaha ;D

Well anyway, I gave birth to my very handsome baby boy on November last year. And I breastfed because it was more healthy for my baby, plus it's free!  ;) When I took him home, he was crying all day, wala talaga akong pahinga. Tuwing gising sya, iyak ng iyak. He also farted often. And I knew something was really wrong. I went to the hospital and the nurses told me I had flat nipples.  :-[ Kaya pala iyak ng iyak. Baby could latch but from time to time he would let go and cry. Being new to this, I really had no idea. And maybe the farts came from all the air he took in? Maybe?  ??? So I survived breastfeeding for 1 week. But the day came na, super sakit na talaga ng nipples ko, it was bleeding na. Huhuhu  :'( And my OB advised me to just pump my milk out. Super sakit at matigas na rin ng breasts ko nun.  :'(

And from there, I began pumping my milk and bottle feeding it to my baby. It's almost 4 months na doing this. Sometimes I was forced to buy a box of formula in the market because being stressed causes milk to like not come out? Poor me, poor baby  :'( But I still try as hard as I can just to give him the best breast milk as I could.

Two days ago, I was watching Youtube. I saw a video where-in a Mom with flat nipples like me breastfed her baby  :o She was using Nipple Shields! And I researched reviews about this, all I saw was five stars! So I thought this could be the key to my breastfeeding problems! I then ordered online, the best nipple shield there is! MEDELA!  Tried it on my baby, then guess what??? He wouldn't accept them  :( forcing me to pump.... Huhuhu. Sayang lang binili ko! Mahal pa naman  :(

BTW, I'm using a manual pump, that's why I'm having such a hard time. And I can't give him formula all the way cause the fact that breast milk is better for my baby, I also have no job and is relying on my mother for support. Basta, to cut it short, wala kaming pera. hahaha  ;D My boyfriend's family is also having a hard time themselves, baon sa utang!  :-\

Anyway, yan lang po. I don't know why I'm posting this, maybe because I wanted to share my experience? LOL  ;)

Also if there's anyone how wants to buy this Medela Nipple Shield, just tell me, used it only once. Promise!

Hmmmm...have you tried yung Nipple Puller? Parang may nabasa akong ganun eh although I haven't used or seen one. Pigeon yata brand nun. Ask mo na lang sa mga department stores infants section. Kawawa nga si baby. =( Pwede siguro mag express ka na nga lang milk.
