Baby not breastfeeding – Nurse Jackies Tips for week 1-30-21

Posted on

Your parents are babysitting your newborn baby so you and your partner can go out for a romantic dinner.  You have been craving Italian food.  You order the spicy penne with Arrabiata sauce. When you come home and you try to breastfeed  your baby,  the baby rejects your milk.  What answer is the best answer.

  • You have emergency stored milk in the freezer. You should pump and dump and give baby the emergency milk
  • Baby is reacting to separation while you were out, do skin to skin and keep trying
  • Call your pediatrician or take baby to an emergency room 
  • Wait and see if the baby will take the breast later
